As we draw ever closer to Christmas it’s time to meet another of our fantastic in-house designers! Meet Joanna, she’s one of our designers and illustrators who has the envious job of creating beautiful greetings cards for us. A lover of nature who integrates this into her whimsical design, it’s no wonder Joanna fits right in!

A bit about Joanna

Joanna graduated in 2004 with a BA Hons Illustration. She’s now been a designer and illustrator for over 8 years within a greeting card studio. She loves to create cute characters, lots of bears, knitted & felted characters and whimsical illustrations! Outside of work she enjoys exploring in her very snazzy VW campervan Bertie and going on long walks with her dog Bessie. She’s totally at one with nature growing vegetables, baking, making chutneys and taking too many photos, mostly of her dog, birds, owls, red toadstools and deer! She always uses these to help her find new inspiration for her creations. She even turns her drawings into wooden clocks as well as illustrated books and illustrations for homes.
Check out Joanna’s crafty bits and bobs below, her woodland adventures, as well as some of her gorgeous designs for us here at the studio.
