Designer Kiki Parry has been crafting memorable cards since she could fold paper.
Now armed with a PowerBook, array of beautiful recycled content cardstock, and enough cutting devices to narrowly avoid a bloody mess, the sky’s the limit.
After enough friends endorsed her holiday cards with “You should really do this for a living” she started to take note. With an eye for cool design, great paper, and typography, why not share this with the Hallmark-bloated public?
Alternate Greetings combines a great looking card with the stuff you want to say to your friends – but usually can’t find on the shelves. The look is minimal type, elegant and cute, sometimes feminine, sometimes modern, often retro (30’s clip art is a favorite subject of inspiration).
Kiki loves sweet Jersey corn, music, new art supplies, and cats but not things with cats on them, especially not those damn nylon flags people hang outside their house for all occasions. She hates those, and unreasonably slow drivers, and factory farming.
But enough about me, how about you?
