We’re excited to introduce the next of our So This is Christmas stall holders – Little Jess Designs, who joins us for the first time in Worthing on December 6th. Do pop along and meet her in person on the day.
Please introduce yourself and your brand….
My name’s Jess and I’m the pen wielding woman behind Little Jess Designs, a small creative business based in Worthing that designs and sells hand lettered prints, greetings cards, gift tags and invitations.
How would you describe your style and your creations?
I hand letter quotes and phrases inspired by everyday conversation, songs and poetry, which are then turned into prints and cards. My style is a take on calligraphy, but it packs a bolder punch, which is why I mainly work in black and white.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
The English language is clever, which means that I’m never short of inspiration for new designs. I love creating pieces that make people smile as they look at them, and the endless possibilities when it comes to words mean I get some interesting custom orders!
What can we expect to find on your stall at So This is Christmas Worthing on December 6th? And are you looking forward to taking part?
You’ll find a range of my lettering as prints, as well as plenty of greetings cards – both for Christmas, and all year round. Look out for some limited edition hand lettered gift tags too. This is my first big fair but I absoloutely can’t wait, and it’s going to be great to meet new customers and lots of other creative folk!
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
2016 will be my first full year in business, and I’m looking forward to growing Little Jess Designs even further. I have lots of wedding inspired ideas for the spring, and I’d love to get my designs on things like tote bags, notebooks and mugs.
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
The first thing that springs to mind is a card my Dad gave me just as I started Little Jess Designs. It said ‘there is no beginning too small’, and that’s something great to keep in mind as a creative business.
