with Ashleigh

What inspired your career journey?

I am a qualified designer creating textile prints for the fashion industry and have diversified into modern calligraphy. I was inspired to combine modern calligraphy with my own hand drawn or painted illustrations to create bespoke stationery. I am always looking to explore new printing processes in order to produce stationery suitable for every occasion.

What are your trend predictions for 2017?

Modern calligraphy is a big trend, Flourish and Plume plan to expand the calligraphy styles on offer and explore new forms of hand lettering too!

Do you live by any motto or philosophy?

I always try to live each day to the fullest and stay in the present.

What would your best piece of advice be for someone beginning his or her planning journey?

Create a theme or colour palette and refer to this when planning all aspects of the event.

What's your favourite season, why?

I like Spring the most for all the different tree blossoms and bulbs and the days become longer.

P.S and just for reference, what's your favourite word in the English language?
