BLUE PRINT NYC - victoria johnson

These are some striking new designs available for licensing from Victoria Johnson. They form part of the portfolio she'll be showing at Blue Print in New York next week. To create the designs she began playing with paint, then chopped up the various papers and used them to make individual flowers for a potential greetings card range. Victoria is represented by Jennifer Nelson Artists who will have lots to see for buyers and clients at this newly established New York show.

XMAS 2015 - dot com gift shop

A few more Christmas designs now with a selection of inspired designs from The Dot Com Gift Shop. They have gone for old school illustrations with a mid century feel on cards, wrap, bags, cake tins, napkins and more....

And whilst on the subject of The Dot Com Gift Shop a few other new arrivals caught my eye including Scandinavian style birds, retro kids cards and wrap, and animal games with bright illustrations.

And finally as usual I love a little bit of patterned packaging......
