Hello and Welcome to Type & Story.
We are a small London design studio making contemporary paper products. Founded by Graphic Designer, Niccy Iseman, the aim is to create purposeful paper goods for people with stories to tell. Type and Story operates like a tiny micro fashion house in that each 'story' is different but always under the umbrella of typography and storytelling. Ultimately, living well with purpose and intent is at the core of every story choice and the brand’s ethos overall.
Our latest SS’20 curated collection of greetings cards ‘Ethereal’ is a natural progression from our popular Planet Earth range. Characterised by its larger type and more illustrative handwriting, Ethereal celebrates the enchanting magic of the skies, seas and all the mysticism that lies in between. The collection aims to uplift, inspire and empower mindful individuals, friendships and communities, to continue celebrating and protecting our very special Planet Earth.
In the first 6 months...
of launching, Type and Story was featured in three prestigious publications: Stylist Magazine, Wallpaper and Suitcase Magazine, for which we are incredibly grateful. In 2018, Type and Story was one of the lucky Stationery Show Launchpad winners, which enabled Niccy to showcase her products to the trade for the first time, kick-starting her wholesale journey with a bang. In 2019, Type and Story exhibited at Progressive Greetings Live, where Niccy was awarded a Golden Ticket from Paperchase, who have since become a wonderful supporter and stockist. In January 2020, Type and Story won the ‘Most Engaging Print’ category at Top Drawer’s Paper Awards and was runner-up for the 'Most Exciting Use of Colour’ category. Type and Story are now proudly stocked in some of the most exciting UK retailers and beautiful independent stores across the UK, Europe, USA and Hong Kong.
We take interest in so much. We take nothing as fact and are open to multiple interpretations. We take interest in how things are displayed and styled as well as what the core of each collection means. We are open-minded and revel in the act of storytelling.
Tell your story and come and join our gang. It's a great one to be in.’
Bespoke work + Colloborations
Type and Story work with agencies, individuals, businesses and retailers to create bespoke imagery for them which is unique and cleverly crafted.
Our approach is collaborative. We work with you closely to understand your goals and aspirations. Once defined, we develop a strategy to visually represent this in its relevant forms.
We work by getting to the heart and soul of what your work is about and what you want to achieve. Then we translate it by researching, sketching, mocking up and compiling a concept presentation to showcase our ideas to you. When a direction has been agreed, we then create the artwork.
If you would like us to to create something special for you, feel free to contact and tell us a little bit about you.
