Simple-Things began with a few birthday cards for friends, I had a lot of cute and funny phrases I had gathered in my head over time. From song lyrics, quotes from friends to random overheard sayings.
I needed an outlet for them, and started printing them as birthday cards. The reaction they received was phenomenal. They were just simple phrases, but evoked something in people that I could not have anticipated.
I began testing them at markets around the city, there is nothing better than hearing a group of friends howling laughing saying things like 'Oh My God- That is So You' or 'This is totally so-and-so, I have to get it for her'
I keep it simple, a phrase that will catch your eye and instantly you know who it is meant for. The cards are almost personalized.
The cards were picked up by a number of online publications: 'The Huffington Post', 'Bored Panda' The Journal to name a few.
I have just launched my range of Christmas Cards, they are very current, 2020 has been an interesting year, lots of inspiration for my range. Also, a lot of downtime to come up with new lockdown related cards.
I hope you like them!
