The story behind the Willowbound name

Back at my childhood home, there was a magnificent willow at the front of the yard. It was massive!

I grew up playing under that willow and it was magical. I loved it in summer when no-one could see me through the curtain of leaves.

I felt like a princess climbing its branches, and my imagination ran wild as I made up stories and fantasy lands.

The willow was my favourite place; it was a place of beauty and  wonder and it felt like home.

Sadly, when the house was sold, the willow was cut down. But this weeping willow will always be one of my special memories.

The willow symbolises to me the heart of a journal.

A journal is a place where you can be yourself. It’s a place where you can let your imagination run wild. It’s a place where you can be creative and express yourself. It’s a place where you can document your memories, keep your treasures, and record your life. It’s a place of beauty and wonder. And it’s a place that feels like home.

Logo and business card

Well, I’ve just ordered 100 of these business cards for a trial run.

I ended up including blue in the logo because even though all black is classic, when I saw the proofs it just wasn’t me. I need colour, and blue is me.

The blue also represents creativity. I love the classic look but I’m not here to be classic; I’m here to be creative. So I wanted to go for something a bit different that spoke of imagination and an element of unconventionality.

The other thing I changed was the back where I streamlined it. It was a bit too busy with all the social media icons, so I just simplified it and included the two most important details.

I’m not sure if I’ll like the colour or design when I see the actual cards so that’s why I’ve just gone for 100 cards. I can always change it for the next print run.
