A Little Thank You

 

Blogging became a real passion of mine a couple of years ago.  When I saw the ideas, connections and encouragement it creates, I was inspired!  I can see how it really sets off tangents and passions you never knew you had.  In the spirit of doing something different each day, I’m currently making an effort to remember those who’ve helped me, and there are certain people I’d like to thank, who’ve really accelerated me when I reached out to them online with a seed of my ideas and encouraged me on my way to pursue my hobby to its full potential.

Thanks for your impeccably lovely mannered encouragement and well wishes.  I hope I can offer the same to my future readers and bloggers when it comes to enhancing their creative ventures.  A little joy spread is a day’s work well spent.  Thanks for supporting Wildflower, ladies!

Arts & Crafts

 

It’s lovely to have something in print once in a while, in that regard I was very excited to receive these newly produced business cards!  From the conceptual to the tangible, I wanted this design to have tactile charm so I chose a specialist printing company for some unique finishing touches.

If you look closely you’ll see the central logo has a raised finish, giving it a little distinction from the rest of the card.  This is called varnished embossing, it’s a little like ‘spot UV’ except it’s 3D rather than a flat gloss.  There are various types: for a more pronounced embossing, you can have the paper ‘pushed through’ like a rubber stamp effect from front to back.  The printing market has diversified in such an exciting way in recent years that this kind of printing is now affordable even to small businesses.  Take a look online at some inspiring design ideas out there!  Wildflower PR can work with you to produce all kinds of unique styles, both flat and embossed, on any budget.

Vintage Art Deco Embossed Business Cards

Like a greetings card, I believe the business card will always be a classic, something of a gift to be received – it sparkles no matter how many emails we send!  Not only are they personal, they’re memorable: a detailed first impression.  I’ve always loved to see how different companies present themselves on paper, ever since I was very young I found logos and business cards strangely fascinating.  As with a good old-fashioned letter, some things will always maintain their sense of style.

Partaking in little bit of traditional pen-and-paper correspondence myself this week, in fact, I was inspired to discover that the Queen herself has a business card, of sorts!  This beautiful silver pearlescent blue happens to be the shade of choice to mark the jubilee year stamps, with the quote: ‘I shall always work to advance the happiness and prosperity of my peoples’ (Queen Elizabeth II 1952)

Okay, so maybe when your face is on coins and stamps, your PR operation may be in a different league from the rest of us.  However, I do love a bit of vintage design and I like to think no-one is above the merits of a bit of good self-promotion.  Classic rules of business: tell people what you do, put a face to your name and sell your services with conviction!  I look forward to exchanging some cards with you soon.


January Happenings

 

Thanks to friends, supporters and new visitors, Wildflower PR has successfully launched in 2013!  Thank you for all the Facebook likes and personal recommendations; because of you we’re delighted to have had both charming new introductions and enchanting projects come our way.

It’s been a personal milestone month for me, with my graduation from my long awaited MSc in Public Policy & Management at King’s College, London.  After two years of hard work and doubting whether this would ever actually happen, I can tell you it felt pretty great to be enjoying this moment!

King's College London

What did I learn?  Well, I’ve always been a little weary of ‘top-down’ enterprise; I think my most inspired lesson here was about grass roots community development.  This course helped me to articulate what was missing: I think you could call this heart and soul.  And of course, it was here I stumbled on the unexpected but happy notion of starting my own business.

In pursuit of that goal, this month has seen a few new bursts of creative colour in the form of new Wildflower projects.  We’ll be working on a new lifestyle blog in the U.S. for a renowned food, fashion and fitness enthusiast.  Think cute illustrations, bespoke characters and something for Pinterest fans to admire.  We’ll also be working with a school in the English West Country, and here in London we hope to see a broadcast firm prosper with our help through a digital advertising campaign.

As you can see, we love the diversity of our clients’ creative ideas so whatever job you have in mind, big or little, we’re happy to offer advice or feel free to send me an email.  Until then, thank you for following, and for helping this little business to flourish.  Oh, and if you’re looking for a bit of creative inspiration this week, perhaps try the cinematic kind in the form of the new movie “Flight‘?  For some pretty spectacular aviation heroics, you can’t beat Hollywood…

‘No-one could have landed that plane like I did’.  No, Denzel, they probably couldn’t!

Sarah’s Blog

 

Hello, visitors! You’re very welcome to this, my first edition blog and the launch of Wildflower PR.

Wildflower PR is a creative design studio, and communication is our art form.  Everybody, it seems, knows a little bit these days about the many modern day ‘hats’ of the internet and digital media.  Few, however, are experts when it comes to wearing them well.  That’s our niche: think of us as your personal business stylists.

Our hats are classics.  Whether they’re flourishing peacocks of social media campaigns, striking web designs, memorable logos, or bright, bold roadshows, they’re all worn with grace and style, and they don’t go out of fashion.

Sophistication and grace is our motto.  We believe in good manners and business with principles.   Classic, iconic branding, timeless writing and beautiful simplicity are our crafts and we believe in using them to inspire others and treat your audience with respect.

As designers, we thrive on intuition.  We know how to illustrate you with the best branding, stage you with perfected timing and storyboard your every detail with our expert knowledge of key messages.

Looking good is the order of the day and elegance is our specialty.  As a wise lady once said, it is, after all: ‘the only beauty that never fades.’

We love to hear from visitors, so don’t be shy and please feel free to leave a guest comment in the box below to hear back from us!
