About Pastel Designs.
Hi, I am Charlotte…
I am a graphic designer from Sherborne in Dorset. Pastel Designs my creative outlet, where I can really use lots of love and sparkles!
My other company, F&R Designs Limited, is my serious side! Which offers a range of design and printing services along with creating websites.
I am obsessed with: Tea, Gin, Typefaces, and Shoes.
I’ve been dreaming big since 1978. Married since 2000 and have two miracle daughters! (now that is another story)!
Yes, I was that little girl who stole all the petals from my mother’s roses just to make perfume in the hope I could sell it to make some pennies, I have been looking for that next opportunity ever since.
I didn’t leave school knowing what I wanted to do for the rest of my life, hell, I didn’t know that when I was 25! I have been doing a grand job of winging it shall we say. Until I hit my thirties, clarity!
I have always been creative, always loved how things looked so I chose to embrace it. Graphic design, logos, branding, and then websites. After sailing my way through uni (only because I had found my passion) I built F&R Designs. The rate at which my business is growing is great and it’s all through word of mouth!
I have been part of over 45 branding projects ranging from simple logos to full-blown search sites. You will see from my testimonials that my customers just keep coming back time and time again.
I have undertaken a lot of research in stationery design, I have seen a lot of disasters (mainly on Facebook) but also a lot of beautiful designs.
I have also looked at the quality of the paper and cardstock, I use only the highest quality, your special day is important to me I would like you to return time and time again.
So taking all of the above into consideration I wanted to price correctly, I might not be the cheapest but I can promise you the quality and love that goes into creating your personal stationery, there will never be another or your bespoke design and that is a promise.
Behind the scenes…
I have myself been married for 19 years and have 2 beautiful children. We live in the South West of England in a little town called Sherborne, Dorset. I think Sherborne is well known for the private schools and the quaint little-cobbled street full of independent shops.
If you have any questions or would like to work with me please contact me, I look forward to hearing from you.
To keep prices down, some of our products may require a bit of assembly, such as the wedding sets with invitation wraps and the envelope liners. We would be happy to do this for you for an extra charge, or you can use it as an excuse to get the bridesmaids round and open the prosecco!
Please be aware that colours and textures displayed on screen may not exactly match how they will look when printed so a slight tolerance should be allowed for.
We want you to be 100% happy with your order so if for any reason you are not, please tell us so we can fix it. If you are, please tell your friends.
