Alison Ormsby designs and hand creates a variety greetings cards. In 2004 she established AliO Designs to craft high quality, innovative design-led art greeting cards for sale through retail outlets.
After graduating in Wildlife Illustration many years ago, Alison Ormsby returned to County Down and worked as a freelance illustrator specialising in Irish wildlife, her work being selected for several RUA exhibitions.
The hand drawn, painted and embellished pure silk cards passionately embrace local, natural and cultural elements, reflecting lifestyle trends. Often inspired by the simple exquisite beauty, shape and form within the natural world, Alison combines technical skills and creative flair with graphic design.
The consistent format of her cards creates a strong product and maker brand. Ranges include cards left blank for any occasion and those with added greetings in complimentary fonts to suit specific occasions.
Blank cards measure 105mm x 148mm and are individually cellowrapped with coordinating envelope.
