Lorna Syson

Lorna Syson has been designing greeting cards and stationery in her South East London Studio for 10 year.  Her designs draw on her childhood in Warwickshire, holidays in Cornwall, and country walks with her dog, Jenkins who is still part of the team with the official title of Studio Dog!

Lorna’s images are drawn by hand and on the computer and are created in Lorna’s signature style, often using a silhouette technique to produce vibrant and contemporary shapes.

Lorna is proud to work with British manufacturers across the UK, from Lancashire to Kent, partnering directly with skilled craftspeople to produce high quality products and never compromising on quality.  

Lorna recognises the importance of long-lasting products that are good value and kind to the environment as all her greeting cards have a recyclable plastic wrap.

What are shops saying about us ?

"Beautiful British Designs have helped me discover new designers that I think I would have otherwise missed. They have gone out of their way to help me and I find them very trust worthy and efficient to work with."

Steph Proudly

"Beautiful British Designs offer a great service for an independent shop owner like me. They help me find high quality products from UK designers that I would not have usually seen. I am now stocking Penny Lindop thanks to their service."


"I've been following Beautiful British Designs for a while now and am so pleased I did so. As a retailer I'm constantly looking for new and unusual products that I might not see at the zillion trade shows I visit every year. They feature so many small and interesting designers that something always catches my eye."

"I went straight to your website and love what I see! Just setting up my shop so early days and fully stocked and good to go. But I am so glad you found me and I will be in touch with several of your designers. Really interesting stuff."
