Our Valentine’s Day competition roundup

Meet the winner of our Valentine’s Day Greeting Card competition!

Ah, love is in the air. From the flowers to the balloons to the heart-shaped everything being sold in stores, it’s clear that Valentine’s fever is in FULL swing.

To celebrate all things romance, we recently ran a Valentine’s Day design competition on social and were thrilled to see so many different designs come our way. From the thoughtful to the silly to the heartbreakingly pretty- choosing a winner from all these designs was a tough call… but we managed it.

So grab some chocolates, mute Bridget Jones’ Diary and get to know our winner!

Our winner: Molly O’Donoghue

After much deliberation, we decided that this design would be the one we’d most like to have popped through our letterbox on Valentine’s Day! Creative, quirky and cute- this card was created by the wonderful Molly O’Donoghue and showcases how a little cranky humour can be surprisingly heartfelt and sweet.

And of course, we have some honourable mentions too!

What’s better than a puppy? How about a puppy in a jumper with a balloon?

We’re a big fan of anything that involves cute animals in design, and this adorable design by Blush & Blossom is a prime example. Mixing a soft cartoony style with bold looping typography (and a good ol’ pun) creates a card that’s guaranteed to leave a smile on your valentine’s face.
