Well, it’s been a pretty busy couple of weeks, putting the final touches to the final designs for Pulse and getting everything ready such as stand design, price lists and packaging etc. Amongst the endless ‘to do’ lists and late nights, it was a real treat to have a wonderful review written about my ‘Deer Little Forest’ products on ‘Lucylovesya‘ blog! It was an utter pleasure sending Lucy a package of Deer Little Forest goodies. I do love sending my products beautifully wrapped with all the hidden extra details to make my customers smile. I think it did the trick and Lucy’s blog post certainly made me smile.
Thank you Lucy X

A few weeks ago Jo Rose, creator and illustrator behind stationary and gift companyDeer Little Forest got in touch to ask if I would be interested in doing a product review of her new range. I had already seen some of Jo’s cards in Liberty London and Selfridges a little while ago, so felt honoured to be asked.
Jo’s inspiration is found in her surroundings of the New Forest – heathers, ferns, deer and ponies ! Her love of folklore, forests and Scandinavian design is clear to see in her combination of pencil illustration and paper cutting along with her vivid dream like imagination. Her work was originally discovered when she was selling her cards at Camden Market whilst studying Costume Design at the London College of Fashion. Her collections have evolved and now she is excited to be launching her brand new range of notebooks, invitations, wall stickers and wrapping paper.
When the box full of Deer Little Forest goodies arrived here, beautifully presented – my immediate observation was the uniqueness of Jo’s drawings, sense of fun along with the beautiful colours. I love the animal characters – this season Jo has added some Eastern flavour to the forest with Elephants in her bright signature colour palette. Aren’t they meant to be lucky ?
My girls love the wall stickers, we’ve stuck them above their dressing up box. They’re removable so you can peel off and re-apply if necessary. I will be using the invitations soon too, they’re very good quality. The cards are adorable, I’m torn whether to give them on Birthdays or keep and frame !
What I especially admire about Deer Little Forest is that all of their products and packaging are printed in the UK, onto recycled and FSC credited stock, the envelopes are all recycled and cello bags are biodegradable -as are the wall stickers. I mentioned in an older post about my distaste of all the land waste we produce in the world so this is a definite selling point for me. 100 % Eco friendly – yes please !
I would also like to add that as a blogger who receives tons of emails each week about products and brands – it’s always impressive when someone takes the time to actually represent their company in such a positive way by being so amiable and sending out a good range of products to review. It’s respectful and much appreciated.
Deer Little Forest will be at the London Trade Show, Pulse this May so if you’re visiting, be sure to pop by and say hi to Jo on stand CG5. I’m really looking forward to meeting her in person myself there.
