Work in Progress

Print

Working on some new proverb-cards for in the Papercup webshop. A nice job for a quite sunday morning with a coffee and my favorite music in the background. Do you like this one so far;-)? Take a peek in my shop for more cards and posters with inspiring texts. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Christmas Fair Trade

Christmas is in the air! It’s one of my favorite seasons with lots of festive moments to look forward to. Among those moments is the Fair Trade Fun Fair that’s going to be held in Union Church (Kennedy Road 22, Hong Kong, 9th of December). They will sell lots of unique products from Mongolia, Nepal etc. and support the local communities out there at the same time. I did the flyer en poster design for the event. The sparkling stars represent little glimmers of joy, warmth and sincere attention in a grey and indifferent world.

Etsy shop

As off today you can also purchase Papercup cards and posters from my Etsy shop. I’m very curious how this will work out, for it seems to be pretty hard to generate a lot of traffic to the original webshop http://www.papercup.nl. Etsy is a community of people who love crafty stuff and the buying and selling is a ‘market place’ experience. So far I spend more than I earned so if you want to help me fix the balance, you’re very welcome to;-): www.etsy.com.shop.studiorefill

In the meantime I’m very open to any advice on how to increase the amount of visitors/buyers at http://www.papercup.nl. Ideas?

New Cards / Posters Papercup

This week I could pick up two new cards and posters at my printshop in Sheung Wan. I’m happy with the result, because they are specifically suitable for adding to a book-present or hanging one of them in a study close to your bookshelves. I hope you’ll like them too;-).

Price poster: E15.00/HKD150.00, price cards (5pc): E2.50/HKD25.00. This week you can pre-order with a 10% discount by email.  Next week they’ll appear in the webshop www.papercup.nl

New Poster Papercup

Here’s a snapshot of the new A2-size poster I designed and picked up at my print-guy last week. It’s one of a series posters and cards on meaningful sayings. My experience is that words can be more powerful when they’re in constant eyesight. Think of the birthday calendar in a toilet or an old wall tile with a proverb on it. They’re there to remind us of things that are important, right?

I made this poster for the Papercup webshop, but I’ll put one on the wall close to my desk as well… a very important reminder of pursuing my dreams one step at a time;-).

You can pre-order this A2 size poster by email or buy it at papercup.nl a week from now. Damage: HKD150 / EU15 (no shipping costs).
