Lindsey Glenn’s new line of holiday cards and gift tags represents the intersection of her passion for fine art and graphic design.
Whether she is composing a photograph, painting in her studio or designing at her computer, she strives for beauty and simplicity in her work. At the Memphis College of Art, Lindsey studied painting and photography. She has also dabbled in letterpress and bookmaking. Her art is inspired by vintage advertising and patterns, and she enjoys experimenting with unusual colors. All of these elements are visible in her first release: Lindsey Glenn Holiday.
The process began in September of this year with meticulous sketching of ideas and experimentation with gouache paint. Her line launched in November, and with steadfast support from her friends and coworkers at The Stovall Collection, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
Lindsey Glenn Holiday has a vintage, hand-painted look combined with modern graphic elements and nontraditional holiday colors. All of the hand-painted designs are digitally printed on a variety of paper choices including whites, ivories, and kraft. You can also upgrade to luxe paper, which is a heavier stock with texture. Envelope colors include shades of green, red and brown. There are several typestyles to choose from that complement the designs. For each design there is a photo and non-photo version of the holiday card and a gift tag.
“I don’t remember a time when I didn’t love working on something artistic,” said Lindsey. Throughout her childhood in North Little Rock, Arkansas, Lindsey’s parents encouraged her interest in all things creative. “As a third grader, I wrote and illustrated a book and enjoyed it so much that I would stay after school to work on it. I then realized that I was happiest when I was being creative.”
