The Fun & Fabulous World of Urban Graphic
To close the week I thought we could take a look at some new lines & bestsellers from one of my favourite greetings card publishers, Urban Graphic.
The bright and fabulous ‘Weenicons’ range is one of my favourites to hit the shops here in the UK in the last few years, with tonnes of iconic designs in the range. Cards are stocked nationwide in John Lewis, Paperchase and funky independent boutiques. The range retail around £1.95 and each comes with a free sticker.
The perfect partner to the ‘Weenicons’ range is ‘Pop Mash’. Genetically modifying popular culture, the range combines two famous modern cultural icons into one shiny new star. As shown in the YokoBono design (above). Bold images are a key ingredient of Urban Graphic cards, evident in the photographic range ‘Through the Looking Glass’ by Tony Cresswell (shown below).
Not only good with images, Urban Graphic also have a way with words and have created a brilliant collection of typographic cards. The ranges entitled ‘Scrawl’ and ‘More Scrawl’ combine modern graphics and witty words. Cards retail at prices from £1.65.
Our final images show the new ranges for 2010. Images are from Simon Munnery’s range of typographic cards. A collection of brilliant quotes such as ‘Forget to Drink’. The 15cm square greetings cards are blank inside. The last image is from the funky new Paul Frank collection. Called ‘Jammin’ With Clancy’ the card features strong, bright graphics and the famous Paul Frank monkey.
