New Partner! - Note Card Cafe


I am really delighted to announce that I have five new ranges of notecards now available through Note Card Cafe! 

Note Card Cafe is an online retailer in the USA working with designers and artists to create a vast selection of notecards and greeting cards suitable for any occasion. Designs are available in various sized packs including six designs in a pack of 36 or 72, with some designs available as a single design in packs of 24. All notecards are printed on a heavy 15 pt. card stock with a quality glossy finish to the exterior and with the inside left blank for your message. My new notecard ranges cover a variety of themes and celebrations including:


A selection of 'thank you' cards and one typography design card that is suitable for many greeting occasions. All feature folk inspired patterns in classic colour combinations including blue and yellow and red and blue, with motifs such as apples, pears, bunnies and birds, as well as floral motifs. 







Fabled Forest





'Fabled Forest' is a mixed range of 'thank you' cards and cards with no sentiment that are perfect for any occasion. Designs are brightly coloured and feature forest inspired themes with bold florals and animals such as hummingbirds, foxes, deer and more. There is also a whimsical heart design. 








'La Dolce Vita' lets you say 'thank you' with Mediterranean inspired style! Bold designs in classic blue and orange, or blue and yellow evoke a sense of classic Italy. Included are orange and lemon prints, tile patterns, leaf prints and floral designs. There is also a 'La Dolce Vita' typography design that can be used for many different greeting occasions. 











'Harvest' is a selection of vibrant designs inspired by freshly picked vegetables at harvest time, Autumn / Fall leaves and sunflowers. The cards are perfect for everyday sentiments, but are also ideal for Thanksgiving with on trend hand drawn typography in 'Gather' and 'Be Thankful' designs. 










'Winterland' is a collection of greeting cards suitable for the whole of the festive season. The range features three hand drawn typography designs with messages of 'Season's Greetings', 'Noel Noel!' and 'Happy Holidays!' There are additionally three pattern based designs featuring motifs including reindeers, baubles and Christmas trees all in a modern red, white and light teal colour way.

Surtex & Licensing Expo 2017


My agents, Jewel Branding & Licensing will again be exhibiting my designs at Surtex in New York and Licensing Expo in Las Vegas later this month. This year Surtex runs from May 21st - 23rd and Licensing Expo from May 23rd - 25th. With both shows happening back to back for the first time, I've been super busy updating my portfolio with fresh new designs! All of my designs begin as hand drawings, so for months now I have been drawing, drawing, drawing - which has been wonderful! Here are a few examples - You can see more by following my Instagram @vickyyorkedesigns where I have documented much of my preparation for the shows. 






I am so inspired by the sea and recently took a working holiday to the coast to do more sketching and to provide some last minute inspiration for new collections. I'm now in the final stage of preparation, pulling all of my patterns together and creating product mock-ups. Below is a sneaky peak at some of my collections, the first of which is aptly named 'Jewels of the Sea'.



My 'Sand Dunes' collection was inspired by the stunning coastal flowers found in the sandy banks around the beautiful National Trust beach at Studland in Dorset and the calming colours of the sand and the sea. 


I've added many new designs to my portfolio covering surface pattern design, illustration and typography in my bright and whimsical style. As well as coastal prints, themes include animals, florals and designs inspired by travel, as well as Christmas and other seasonal designs. A few more examples of what you can expect to find in my portfolio are shown below. 




There is so much more to see, so if you are visiting the shows please be sure to stop by and see my agents at:
