Ooh I Like That Design
Fun and quirky illustrated greeting cards, bible verse prints and gifts by George Peters
Hi! My name is George and I live in Somerset with my husband Sam.
In June 2014 I decided to use my graphic design knowledge (all of which was taught to me by my father who was a successful graphic designer) and combined it with my quirky humour to create fun and colourful greeting card and print designs that make you smile.
I always joke that I have a creative compulsive disorder, so being my own boss means I get to do a wide range of things and I find that I work best with variation. At the moment it is just me running the business but I definitely would not have got this far with out the support and encouragement from my husband Sam, who would love us to work together and be able to support ourselves financially doing what we love.
At the moment there is no 'typical day' which I love, but I am either creating new designs from my home office, fulfilling or restocking online and wholesale orders, painting and experimenting new ideas, meeting and emailing potential new clients and of course drinking lots of coffee.
Friends and family and every day expressions inspire a lot of my cards ranges. Some of my best sellers have come from my friends pharses. The deal with my friends is if they inspire a card they get the it named after them. For example "I am like literally so happy for you" is my best friends saying and so is named 'Literally Emma Card'.
I would say my design style is fun, colourful and quite eye catching. My customers do literally say 'Ooh... I like that!' when they pick up my products which always makes me chuckle when they realise the name of the brand.
One of my favourite products is my A3 Bible Alphabet print - it was a lot of fun to create, if not a good challenge. I think its such a unique gift, it is also my most popular print.
