I love finding and blogging about new businesses and finds I come across in my travels across the internet. Especially handmade and clever clog-like businesses.
Like Laura from The Think Tree, who designs a range of cards, stationery and prints, all printed with an eco-friendly focus.
I aim to create beautiful paper products that are friendly on the earth, a little bit fun and a pleasure to look at.
Be sure to pop over to her shop to grab some special Christmas cards in time for the festive season!
I’m Laura, a 27 year old graphic designer who after working for roughly five years in the industry, relocated from Melbourne to Brisbane with my partner’s job and had the opportunity to start my own home-based business, The Thinktree. I produce environmentally conscious paper products such as greeting cards, prints and invitations. They are all completely original designs and are printed locally (if not in my home studio) on 100% recycled paper and packaged using recyclable materials. I also undertake many custom graphic design projects and have a steady but growing client base.
I’m inspired by the environment, humour, puns, originality, simple & clever design, colourful patterns & textures, song lyrics and sayings and also by feedback & suggestions I receive.
Who you admire:
I admire people who are trying to make a difference in their everyday lives and businesses. People who support fair trade, shop locally & ethically and source environmentally friendly products where possible. I also admire people who work hard and follow their hearts, even if it means taking risks.
