We've been watching Julia Rothman's work for some time now and were thrilled to finally meet her last year at the National Stationery Show. We love the hip, urban quality to her illustrations and the slightly naive linework - it all comes together in illustrations that are slightly retro and totally inspiring.
So, we were thrilled when Julia agreed to lend her illustrations to our new, exclusive line of letterpress greeting cards. We commissioned the illustrations shown above and then collaborated with Julia on the graphic design. We letterpress printed the cards on 30% post-consumer waster recycled paper in our San Francisco studio (the photographs don't due justice to the fine, indented lines created by the printing process!). One of our favorites has got to be the Silverware thank you card - perfect for dinner parties. Coming soon: matching gift wrap!
The cards were just featured on Design*Sponge (thanks, Grace!), which has also featured Julia's fantastic work for Urban Outfitters and Freddy & Ma, among others. See more of Julia's wonderful illustration work here.
