Fairy Frog creates and sets the tone of the day with beautiful designs from save the dates through to tableplans for your Wedding, alongside other celebration stationery.
I had a chat to Vicky who runs Fairy Frog who describes herself as a fun loving designer, illustrator, wife, mother and Haribo lover.
Who are you, and what do you do?
“I’m Vicky – the brains, the artist and the tea maker behind FairyFrog Wedding Stationery.”
Why, and when did you start FairyFrog?
“FairyFrog started as a hobby, designing bespoke stationery for friends and family – I adored being able to help loved ones create a vision for their perfect day.”
“After receiving such fabulous comments from guests, especially for my own wedding stationery, I had the ‘lightbulb’ moment and with over 10 years experience in the design industry I was ready to chase my dream.”
“FairyFrog was officially born January 2012.”
What inspires you
“Anything and everything! I’m forever whipping my phone out to take a snapshot of a piece of art hanging on the wall, or a funky font on a restaurant menu, or a pattern on random wallpaper – it’s never ending.”
“I’m also massively obsessed with Pinterest… it’s a whole new way of scrapbooking! I’ve even got my own Pinterest boards to help inspire future bride and grooms with theme ideas.
Do trends influence your designs?
“Yes! As with everything in the design world, trends are constantly evolving.”
“FairyFrog is about creating stationery for the modern bride – that’s why I’ve just launched a new collection for 2013/2014 featuring Hanging Lanterns (which are soooo gorgeously eye-catching for weddings right now), Hollywood Glam (to suit 1920’s Gatsby and Downtown elegance), Tea Party (for the vintage crockery lover out there) and Just My Type (for a bold, modern typographical piece of art).”
“Lace and florals are timeless so I feel its important to keep elements of these in my new designs.”
Whats your greatest achievement?
“I still remember the phone call I had from my first ever client after receiving her invites…. she was ecstatic and so thankful.”
“It filled me with pride and made me realise that all the hard work setting up the company was totally worth it. I LOVE putting a smile on peoples faces!”
What do you see as the future of your company?
“I would love FairyFrog to continue to grow into a well-known stationery company and to make many bride and groom’s happy with the personal service they receive from me.”
Here is just a selection:
Thanks so much to Vicky for sharing her creativity with us today. I particularly like the Love Collection, perfect for the Bride that loves bold, and colourful design.
