We are Bottled are a design company based on the Southside of Glasgow producing designs for print, photography prints and unique Wedding Stationery, and today I am delighted to spotlight on this super talented wee Glasgow company.
They can also offer a range of services for Business whether its a new logo, business stationery or a new Brand identity.
We are Bottled Love is the softer side of the Business and offers, Save the Dates, Invitations, RSVP’s and Thank you cards, and can even design all of your Wedding stationery with Table plans and placecards too.
They recently did some graphics and printing work for the Big Fat Scottish Tweet Up and I am thrilled to say they were quite literally fabulous!
I chatted to David Norwood who runs We are Bottled to find out all about this exciting new addition to the Glasgow Wedding scene,
Who are you ?
“We Are Bottled is a graphic design company based in the south side of Glasgow. We have different areas of the business, one being Bottled Love which is our wedding stationery side of things.”
When, and why did you start your Business ?
“We Are Bottled started in January 2012. It all began because we wanted to take our existing knowledge in graphic design and take it into the wedding industry to provide an alternative choice to brides.”
What inspires you ?
“Our designs are more modern and influenced by graphic design which has come across well with brides to be.
Its a bit of a cliche but everything we see can have some sort of impact in our work.”
“You could be walking down the street and look at something and think thats amazing, I can use that idea or see something on tv and take inspiration from that.”
“We are also heavily inspired by the world of graphic design and love to follow new trends and try to gain inspiration from new techniques and print methods that we could possibly use for our own work.”
“I think there is a definite market for the kind of work we do and I think a more graphical element will push through in years to come and people will appreciate more the work and fine details that go into various designs and printing methods. It will influence our company to push the boundaries and make sure we don’t get left behind.”
What is your Favourite Design?
“My favourite design is a design we call “modern & bold”. It’s my favourite as it is heavily influenced by typography and given our graphic design background it is an important aspect of design. It has great impact and is definitely keeping to our graphic inspired designs.”
What is your Greatest Achievement?
“Starting a business is by far my greatest achievement. It has been a stressful year but I am glad it has happened and wouldn’t change it for anything. Given that I am still only 24 I feel it is a great achievement.”
Whats the future for We are Bottled ?
“For Bottled Love the future is looking good. We are constantly looking to expand our range of designs and have a new print technique in mind that has not been tried before, which I’m sure will be a great success with brides to be.”
“We want to keep Bottled Love going and make it the first thing on peoples minds when booking their wedding stationery.”
Thanks to David for sharing his work. I was really impressed with the standard and quality of the work I commissioned and with how approachable and how helpful he was in getting the design just right… most definetely great for those wanting a bold style choice for the Big Day stationery.
