Indigoelephant is a small, creative, one-person business set-up in 2010. It is run by Julia Brooks, a painter, who splits her time making screen printed greetings cards, wrapping paper, gift tags, oil paintings, drawings and original prints. Indigoelephant's stationary designs are a creative outlet for Julia's off-beat sense of humour and are intended to be fun, contemporary, as eco-friendly as possible, original and different.
"I started Indigoelephant to create a job for myself. I work part-time as a painter and wanted my other job to be a creative one, that used my skills. I wanted to work independently (have no annoying work colleagues), have a peaceful working atmosphere (no dastardly office politics) and be self-employed (have no horrible boss). When i was young my art tutor told me that I was good at graphic design and could have a career in this field. I remembered these words. I taught myself screen printing to transform my designs into professional products - and the items you see in my store are the results."
"Thank you to all my customers for helping me have this creative job, working for myself. I really do appreciate your custom very much."
