There is no denying that there is a cloud over the country right now in light (probably the wrong choice of word here) in view of recent announcements on restrictions and lockdown.


I have always believed that you have to go high when they go low (thank you Michelle Obama), so I am creating a series of postcards that customers can send to loved ones to give that personal sentiment when getting together is disallowed.

I am kicking off the campaign with a fashion-led image to indicate that no matter where you are, a phone call can say I love you in the most heartfelt way.
