Hot on the heels of our last romantically inclined artwork giveaway, today I am busting to show you the stunning art produced by Lisa Long of More than Words! Lisa creates the most stunning typographic artwork on canvases and now screenprints which make brilliant presents for that couple (we all know them) who didn’t have a gift list, a wedding present for your beloved or something to out on your own gift list perhaps?
I say it often, but never before have I been quite so desperate to purchase something we’ve featured on the blog. Without further ado, I’ll hand you over to Lisa to tell you all about More Than Words. Make sure you check out the Giveaway (yes you read that right… GIVE. AWAY. As in FREE to one of you lucky lot!) at the end of the post too!
More Than Words was launched in 2010 by creative designer Lisa Long. Her lifetime love of interiors and typography, combined with a search to find a piece of meaningful and high quality artwork for her own home, led Lisa to design what is now the ‘original Memories canvas’. She was soon inundated with requests from friends and family to design a piece for them… and from there More Than Words was born.
Less than one year on, Lisa’s typographic artwork has been commissioned by customers all over the world. Some of her high profile clients include Dannii Minogue and screenwriter and film director Richard Curtis. Lisa also works closely with interior designers and More Than Words artwork decorates the walls of several well-known corporate businesses, including the headquarters of one of the UK’s leading bridal magazines.
Lisa was a finalist in the 2010 Mumpreneur UK awards for ‘Most Unique Product’ and is currently shortlisted from thousands of nominated UK businesses in the UK.COM awards as ‘Best Creative Business Idea’, judged by Sarah Beeny and an elite panel of entrepreneurs later this month.
More Than Words recently organised its first professional product photoshoot in collaboration with some amazing UK wedding suppliers. Today we have first peek at the shots, including some hot off the press designs.
Artwork for every occasion
More Than Words produces bespoke typographic designs in a range of themes using your words and precise colours. Lisa also offers a collection of limited and unlimited designs.
Each unique piece is hand-finished in the UK to fine art standards onto your choice of acrylic, canvas, a beautiful framed print or the signature More Than Words ‘vintage framed canvas’.
“My list of creations is so varied – from designs to decorate new homes, celebrating the birth of a baby, personalised poetry…birthday presents for that person who has just about everything. I’ve recently created a huge Memories canvas as a leaving present for one of the most powerful men in British business!
The majority of my designs requests and the ones I love to create the most, are for loved-up couples celebrating an anniversary or as a gift to offer their bride or groom as a keepsake of their wedding day.
In fact, I’m often found at my computer with tears in my eyes whilst scrolling through the sentimental words that people send to me, be it their wedding reading, a poem they’ve written, their ‘favourite things’, quirky ways of saying ‘I love you’… I absolutely love being able to capture such special moments for my customers.
The first to bring you quality personalised bus blinds in the UK, More Than Words can also capture those special places from your first kiss, your first home and amazing holidays together.
