I didn’t think I would have my own design business, I was all set with a background in primary teaching and a Masters in illustration to write and illustrate children’s books and then the pandemic hit and changed everybody’s plans. I set up Victoria Cox Illustrates in Lockdown at a time when everyone was sending a lot more post than normal because we couldn’t see each other and I haven’t looked back
I offer fully customised greetings cards for every and any occasion. Nothing is off limits and everything is possible, if you want it on a card I can do it for you, I’ll even send it straight to your recipient and sign it for you if that helps! I started with custom cards because I had been making my own greetings cards for friends and family for years so it made sense. I now offer a selection of blank card packs, postcards and most of the greetings card designs on my website can be fully personalised. There is also a selection of my original watercolour prints which make lovely gifts and can be customised with a name too
One of the most exciting things I have discovered a love for whilst on this new business journey has been designing textiles, which are also available on my website. From tea towels to fabrics by the metre I love being surrounded by pattern and colour and love designing new prints for your homes.
I am so inspired by life around me, particularly nature which you’ll see in my work. I love to paint flowers and leaves in water colours using bright bold colours and shapes. Hopefully by sending one of my cards you’ll be brightening someone’s day with something made just for them.
Everything is designed from my studio in Suffolk. All the cards are printed in house to keep down costs, keep an eye on quality and be as mindful of our carbon footprint as possible. With this in mind all our packaging is plastic free, recyclable and compostable.
