Phoenix Trading are always looking for new artists to add to the fabulous range of Phoenix cards that they produce. I thought it might be helpful to share some information about Alison Hullyer. Allison is one of the artists that designed Phoenix cards, stationery and gifts. Phoenix Trading has now closed and I am part of the new company Flamingo Paperie.
Alison Hullyer’s designs
One of Alispn’s illustrations can be found on the Christmas paper chains. This is illustrated by Alison Hullyer who has been an artist for Phoenix Trading since 2002. Her designs include animals, cars, age related cards, pencils, hearts…and lots more!
On her own profile for Phoenix she says:
“I am continually sketching and looking for new ideas everywhere I go and feel very lucky that this is my job. It’s always a thrill to see my new designs come out in print, and I love the challenge of creating new artwork in a variety of styles, even if I am working on Christmas in the middle of summer!”
Everyone who is a Flamingo Partner gets to vote on which designs get through to each new product launch. This means that being accepted as a Phoenix artist is not necessarily as subjective as you might expect. In fact 1000’s of people could be voting on your design. This is something Alison particularly loves “as they know what sells and can provide valuable feedback from their customers.”
Alison is a member of the Cambridge Open Studios where 200 local artists open their studios to the public each year in July.
As well as cards, many of her illustrations are available in fabrics and coasters too and she has her own online shop.
