Web Watch: Cards

1. Audrey Hepburn Complex

Web Watch: Cards

The name alone was hook enough for a click. It’s basically a 20-something girl working for the United Nations in New York trawling around the web and posting pics that inspire her. She’s not promoting herself or her own pics, just nice things she sees and likes on the vast galaxy that is the internet. Simple. And yes, Audrey Hepburn features (a fascinating link to a Harper’s Bazaar article on the magnificent Hepburn) but it’s not all about Funny Face. There’s a hilarious Eloise in Brooklyn cartoon, the new Prada Candy ad featuring Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola and Lea Seydoux and a beautiful image of Anna Karina and Jean-Luc Godard in Geneva, March, 1961. It’s worth a browse.

2. Sleepymoon Cards

It’s great to see Irish innovation and enterprise going on, and the ole web is a grand old place for it to flourish. Two sisters, Natalie and Naomi have designs on the card market. Inspired by their kids Zach and Chloe, and an appreciation for fun, contemporary design, they came up with Sleepymoon. They offer personalised cards for every occasion for the little ones. You can find a castle card for your princess with her name on it or a cute little bird with an umbrella declaring ‘Let’s shower Siobhan’ for your best friend’s baby shower. You won’t find these designs anywhere on the high street and the pricing is reasonable, for example, for 30 personalised baby announcement cards, it’ll cost you E50 or E1.67 a card.
