About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

Here's a new design from my latest collection. I love the way he looks like he's just popping in to shot! It's very exciting as I have a total of 36 new designs to add to my existing range. So a total collection of 54 designs, all ready for Top Drawer in Jan. YAY!

I'll have childrens birthday numbers up to 8, lots of new occasions and a range of 12 messageless cards, (i think we call them notecards in the trade?). The notecards will be 100% eco, recycled and totally biodegradable, the inks will be vegetable based. I say start as you mean to go on and make your business as green as you can.
