Lucilla Lavender Ltd publish contemporary greetings cards, stationery and gift wrap, selling to gift shops, bookshops, garden centres and department stores across the UK and abroad. Based in South West London, the founding partners combined their complementary skills to launch the company in 2008 and it has been growing steadily ever since. Anneke Driscoll has many years’ production experience working for a major card publisher, and Lucilla Lavender is an award-winning brand design director. They wanted to find a distinctive style for their product, and, amongst a flood of graphic, computer-generated cards, Lucilla’s expressive, painted designs have achieved that goal. The designs may look simple, but attention to detail is paramount, from creating gorgeous colour combinations and crafting the typography, through to choosing envelopes.
The company are constantly adding to and refreshing their product and aim to launch new designs throughout the year.
