We welcome Ohh Deer, a range of greeting cards featuring contemporary illustration combined with quirky humour.
Ohh Deer began life in 2011, created by University friends Jamie Mitchell and Mark Callaby. Their idea was to create a platform to help illustrators find an audience for their work and showcase their designs. They started working with just ten illustrators and have since increased that to over a hundred. Throughout their range of cards, the common thread is definitely quirkiness and contemporary design. Oh, and a good sense of humour!
One of their most successful illustrators is Gemma Correll.
Ohh Deer also publish a range of cards based on the Mr Men and Little Miss characters. These beloved characters were originally created by Roger Hargreaves and the resulting children's books were hugely popular. They make for great greeting cards, especially if you can find a recipient to match the character!
We also love the range by Lindsey Thomas, featuring funny captions to photographs of some felt cats.
If like me, you like some truly quirky humour, take a look at this one by Poorly Drawn Lines . . .
This is a small selection of the Ohh Deer range. As you can see, there is wide range of designs. Take a look at the whole Ohh Deer range
