I'm Alex, the designer-maker behind Darwin Designs.
After gaining a first class degree in Illustration, I decided to take a leap of faith and put all my time and effort into pursuing the dream of starting my own business... six months later I launched Darwin Designs.
Using a variety of techniques and styles, and taking inspiration from anything and everything around me, Darwin Designs is focused on producing simple, original greeting cards suitable for a wide range of ages and occasions. All cards are printed on 100% recycled card and packaged by hand in the UK with 80-100% recycled envelopes and clear, biodegradable display bags.
Since Darwin Designs launched in 2014, the range has grown to include prints, accessories and more. In the future I hope to continue this development into more apparel, stationery and home-ware but for now I just hope that every one of my cards and gifts can put a smile on someone's face.
