Designer to Watch in 2021: Janie Velencia
Janie Velencia from The Card Bureau, has shown herself as a stationery star and is one of Stationery Trends’ 10 Designers to Watch in 2021.
Aesthetic of the line?
Fun, modern, and minimal. We’re focused on clean, straightforward graphics with influence ranging from vintage design to playful takes on trends. Our sassy designs are inspired by feminism, politics and pop culture. The collection can also be characterized as eclectic; we work with different designers and seek to preserve elements of each designer’s own unique style while creating a unified company look.

Personally, I quite like “Millennial pink” and we use it whenever we can.
Current Design Obsession?
Designing greeting cards that you can plant for seeded plantable paper. It’s a new concept we’re working with and it’s been fun working with a new medium and figuring out how to best design for it.
Sorry, breaking the rules. It’s a plant: Mother-in-law’s tongue, also known as Dracaena trifasciata.
