Designer Spotlight: Fox & Fallow

This week, we are excited to bring you a fresh and modern line of Holiday greeting cards. These trendy cards are straight off the press from this Australian design house. Fox & Fallow’s Holiday Collection is full of hand lettering and whimsical illustrations, for that sentimental touch. We sat down with them to talk about their design process and their favorite Holiday traditions. 

What made you get involved in the Stationery industry?
Stationery stores - were like kids in a candy store! The problem is we tend to collect stationery and its too pretty to use and I just never want to give the greeting cards away! Weve always loved stationery and started Fox & Fallow as a wedding stationery and signage business after having such a blast designing our own wedding wares. It just evolved from there and bringing out a retail line was something weve always wanted to do. 

What makes your designs stand out from the crowd?
We try to have plenty of variety in our work, from our brush-lettered and calligraphy typography collection to our hand-painted florals and vintage-inspired gentlemanly illustrations, there’s hopefully something for everyone. We love pastels, rich color combos and foil foil foil! 

Where do you look to find inspiration for your designs?
Having a background in graphic design, typography and illustration have always been a passion of mine. Calligraphy and hand lettering is so divine and I love getting my brushes, nibs and pens out whenever I can. Pinterest and some graphic design and branding sites are great, but there needs to be a point when you put all the inspiration away and just draw! 

Tell us about your favorite Holiday memory.
Holidays were always a time to go home and spend time with our families. Eating too much, drinking too much, chatting into the night - it was always a great time to just chill out and indulge! Christmas in Australia is usually super-hot, so overdosing on those delicious stone fruits like mangos, cherries and lychees in between Christmas feasting has always been a fond memory.

Favorite gift you've ever received?
Darrell has always been pretty good at figuring out the perfect gift for me! I was super bummed when I missed out on Taylor Swift tickets as they were all sold out and managed to score a pair for my last birthday! I’m beyond excited! Yep Im I die hard Tay tay fan and Im not ashamed to admit it! 

Favorite cookie you wait all year for?
Ohhh my mums choc chip cookies are kinda amazing!
