Hello Pastel Designs here!

Well a ‘hello’ from me!

Since starting Pastel Designs I have been designing and developing new stationery designs to share with you on my website. I thought a year down the line I had better introduce myself properly.

I am Charlotte and I have been a graphic designer for a few years now, working in the print industry for local printers until starting my own company F&R Designs which this year I took Ltd! F&R Designs covers the corporate side from branding to websites and beyond. I have seen this little dream grow from strength to strength. I am based in the beautiful Dorset town of Sherborne but cover national and international, with the technology today we have the luxury of virtual coffee catch ups!

Why start Pastel Designs you may ask?

Pastel Designs is the personal side, my creative outlet for fun and beautiful personal stationery. Sometimes the pretty and dainty graphic design is missed in the corporate world. I love a little sparkle and floral! As you can see from the website it is pretty in depth, maybe too complicated so over the next few months you will see it go through a bit of a transformation, more bespoke designs and more interactions from me.

I have been really busy for the last few months with bespoke designs, I have been invited to be part of some amazing magazine shoots, ranging from Steampunk to Mid Summers Dream, I really can’t wait to share these with you but at the moment they are a little hush hush. All the shoots have taken place over some stunning venues across Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset. The other suppliers that I have been lucky to work are of the highest caliber and I am in awe of their work.

What is next?

For the final quarter of the year it is all about building up my business for the start of the next wedding season, I have my first show booked for September at the Bath and West Showground, so if you are local please come and say ‘hi’.

I am also working on new designs, and maybe a competition so keep your eyes peeled!

Of course if you are looking for stationery for any event please get in touch, I would love to help you!
