Hi! We’re Lou Brown Designs at Not on the High Street and we’re really pleased that you’ve popped by to see us. We’re a family-run independent design company based by the seaside in Dorset. Working from Two Little Mockingbirds, our studio-shop, we make personalised goodies for those occasions when words may just not be enough.
With past careers as a social worker and a nationally-known singer-songwriter, Lou set up the company as an outlet for her creativity following the birth of her twin daughters in 2011. We’ve grown a lot since those days but still believe in running the business with the best possible ethics. Wherever possible our suppliers are local, family-run businesses like ours, and as much of our packaging and base materials as possible are friendly to the environment.
Lou Brown Designs offers personalised books, jigsaws, notebooks, prints and bags for every occasion and every recipient, from birth to marriages, school to work. We even have a personalised Superhero Kit! Alongside this we offer a range of greetings cards as well as a range of gifts from some of our favourite designers. We've been honoured to be a part of so many people's memorable stories, from birth announcements and first Father's Days to marriage proposals and wedding days. Hopefully we'll be there for many more, and possibly yours!
