In addition to licensing images from the British Library & publishing our own in-house designs, we are proud to represent incredibly talented artists & designers including;
Mo Welch who studied art in Southampton & on achieving her degree in Fashion design in the 1970's, worked in London's West End for both Yuki & Frank Usher. We began publishing Mo's very striking Art Deco & Vintage inspired designs in 2015 & have continued adding to this fabulous collection which is hugely popular with our customers & stockists.
We were delighted to add Ed Org's Art Nouveau & Pre-Raphaelite inspired artwork to our portfolio in 2017. On completing a 3 year BA Fine Art course at Cheltenham college of Art, Ed worked as an illustrator and graphic designer. During this time his commissions included the corporate design for Wychwood Brewery's Hobgoblin beer. Ed's beautiful mystical & mythological art are created in watercolour or intricate pencil drawings.
In 2018 we were thrilled to introduce the Fashion ketch Range by Oscar Nominated & BAFTA Award winning designer, Shuna Harwood. Shuna's interesting career began after graduating from the Royal College of Art. Initially working as Fashion Editor and illustrator for many companies including Harpers Bazaar, before switching to costume designing. Her lengthy filmography includes Brimstone & Treacle, Pretty Woman & Personal Services. The Oscar nomination & BAFTA were for her work on Richard III.
Autumn 2019, we collaborated with freelance graphic designer Janice Daughters, to produce a range of greetings cards for men. Following a one year foundation in art & 3 years of graphic design courses, Janice worked in a London advertising studio specialising in corporate design & illustration, eventually becoming senior designer. Using our current stylish portfolio & vintage inspiration as a basis, we're thrilled with the colourful 'Deco Design Collection' Janice has created.
New for 2020, we're delighted to introduce the Second Nature Collection by textile artist Alice Acreman. We commissioned this beautiful hand painted collection of illustrations which are inspired by the natural world and complement her luxurious range of silk kimono jackets, scarves and beautiful vegan suede cushions.
Here is a recent testimonial from one of our stockists Papa Luca. 15 Broad St, Lyme Regis Dorset DT7 3QE
Upon taking on the shop in 2016 we were advised by the previous owner that greetings cards were not worth stocking. However a few weeks later we discovered Art Nouvocative & knew we'd found the perfect cards. We integrated the fabulous Mo Welch and Ed Org designs with our displays of clothing, accessories, gifts and vintage treasures. Carefully placed, the cards greatly enhance the stock and contribute, along with music and fragrances, which for many, proves to be an irresistible and compelling shopping ambience. So many of our customers enthuse about the cards and it is quite common to find them buying beyond their immediate requirements because they either can't decide which design they like most, or just want to have some beautiful cards in hand to send at a later date.
Art Nouvocative have given us an excellent service during the past year. Orders have been processed and supplied so promptly and helpfully and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to other retailers.
Here is another recent testimonial from King Edward Post Office in Harrogate, taken from their last order with us.
and one more ....
I've truly never seen such beautiful cards, I would purchase every one of these, and intend to do so in the New Year. Every card from you I've sent to friends have made friends happy. We don't send enough cards in this world.
