About us: Flying Twigs is a partnership of David Bennett and Tamara Colloff-Bennett. The partnership address is 31 New Square, Cambridge CB1 1EX.
In designing cards we keep in mind that cards are about relationships, and often close personal relationships. We are designing not just for our customers, but also for the recipients of the cards. Beyond that we are designing for those who see the cards on a table or a mantelpiece.
And we aim to make cards that appeal to the viewer ‘across a crowded room’ as it were. In other words, cards that are striking and attractive.
It’s A Matter Of Taste
That said, our aim is always to be positive and to see the best in all situations including life’s difficult times. Therefore, we don’t make rude or crass cards, or cards that ridicule people.
And because taste is very personal and everyone is different, our collection is broad and eclectic. We like to think almost everyone will find something they can appreciate in our collection of cards (not to forget posters, too).
So when we talk about ourselves, we are also talking about those for whom we design cards and posters.
About Flying Twigs – Practical Matters
In practical terms we pay attention to detail so the cards look just right. that means we use high-quality card stock with a surface inside the card that takes writing without smudging. And our printers use card stock that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council certified.
The other side of being practical is making sure that our delivery logistics are well organised, that the cards go out when promised and dispatched speedily and go out when promised.
Our studio is in Cambridge, and the photo on this page is a view from one of the bridges over the river Cam that looks onto the Colleges of Cambridge University. It is one of our favourite stopping places on walks around the city.
