Today I am thrilled to spotlight on the work of Nikki Swift, a stationery designer based in Newport, Wales who creates stylish stationery for Weddings and Events.
Nikki has been been creating invitations and a wide range of complementary wedding stationery since 2011, working with fabulous couples in the UK and abroad.
I hand you over to Nikki to tell you about herself and the Brand…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“I’m Nikki Swift and I’m a wedding stationery designer based in Newport, Wales.”
“I’m a little bit obsessed with weddings; I love hearing all about a couple’s plans and being able to turn their ideas into a design that captures how special their day will be.”
“Every wedding is unique, so I believe it’s only right that the stationery is too!”
“Most of my work is completely bespoke but even my existing designs can be fully customised – I’ll happily change the colours, choose new fonts, replace the wording and move things around until every tiny detail is right for couple.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“The name Nikki Swift Designs is quite new as I rebranded towards the end of 2015, but I’ve been designing wedding stationery since 2011.”
“I studied Fashion and Textiles at university, and after years of working with fabric I had started to experiment with textile techniques on paper.”
“It was around the same time that I got engaged and started planning my own wedding, and suddenly I had more stationery designs in my head than I knew what to do with!”
“My first customers came through a wedding forum that I’d joined to help my own wedding plans, and soon I was very busy.”
What inspires you?
“Textile prints – I adore florals, stripes, polka dots and interesting patterns.”
“But I also find so much inspiration in the wedding plans of my customers.”
“The ability to create a unique design that perfectly expresses their theme and vision for the day is so much fun.”
Do trends influence your work?
“I’ve never been a slave to trends, but I’ve found colour trend predictions quite interesting ever since I was a fashion student.”
“I always look forward to seeing the Pantone Colour of the Year and this can sometimes spark the idea for a new colour scheme I haven’t tried before.”
“I like to stay aware of what’s popular in wedding world (you should see how many blogs I subscribe to) but my customers are always the biggest influence.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“I’m very proud to be able to run a business from home and still spend every day with my beautiful baby boy.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“I plan to keep expanding my collection and pushing myself to create more exciting new designs.”
“Always inspired to keep growing and learning new skills!”
