Put it on Paper (feat. Andrea Williams)

Evann sits down with Andrea Williams, owner of Andrea Designs, LLC and Paisley Paper Co. to talk about her work as an artist, creative and crafter. Through her design studio, Andrea focuses on branding and information design (logos, infographics, etc.) and has worked with local businesses like Detroit Justice Center, Detroit Regional Chamber and Teach 313.

With her stationery company, Paisley Paper Co., Andrea creates tongue-in-cheek greeting cards, notepads, planners and tote bags. The products from Paisley Paper are sold in 15 stores nationwide and 2 stores locally, and Andrea is hoping to expand to more!

Since the opening of Paisley Paper Co. began with participating in craft fairs, Andrea realized a need for a craft fair for crafters of color – thus going on to create the In Color Craft Market, a craft fair that will be held in Detroit in September of 2020.

Tune-in to learn more about Andrea’s design process, what her least favorite fonts are, why she doesn’t like to receive cards (even though she makes them), and what we can expect from the In Color Craft Market next year.
