This month, our featured artist is Leigh Standley of Curly
Girl Design !
Leigh Standley is the founder and creative director of Curly
Girl Design. By embracing the power of the written word, as well as the magic
of little moments to help bring people together, Curly Girl cards help to
celebrate, support and inspire.
Our partnership with Curly Girl Design launched in 2020. Some highlights since then include:
October 2023: Just last week, "The Cheese" took
home the Consumer's Choice Award. Unique from the other awards, rather than
voted for by industry professionals, this award was voted for by the
card-buying public. Leigh said, "It is always such a treat to win awards,
especially after so many years of work, but to be chosen by the customers, by
the people who USE my work to connect to one another is truly an honor!"
April 2023: The Curly Girl card "The Cheese"
received a Louie Award in the Thank You category and "Many Feathers"
was honored with a Noted @ Noted award in the Wisest category.April 2021: Leigh won Writer of the Year, the most coveted
Louie Award offered by the Greeting Card Association.
Our friends north of the border in Canada at Paper E. Clips
recently started distributing the line in Canada and interviewed Leigh, the big
cheese and original "curly girl" herself. You can read their entire
interview with Leigh here.
