You may have noticed Better Together Paper Co. popping up frequently on our website and social media. Founded by the incredibly talented, Nicole Wakeley, we love to pair up and make our stationery dreams become reality. (Follow our adventures via #betterpressedtogether).
We bring to you a conversation with Nicole - so you can get to know her a bit better too.
What do you do and where are you from?
I am the owner and designer of Better Together Paper Co. - a design studio that specialises in bespoke wedding stationery and calligraphy. We are located on the Central Coast, NSW.
How did you get to where you are today?
I had always known I wanted to end up in the wedding industry but wasn’t 100% sure about what aspect. After design school, I spent a couple of months working on my portfolio and doing a lot of free work for friends - which included wedding invitations.
Later, I applied for my dream job as a wedding stationery designer at The Distillery and this role changed my career. I was introduced to the world of Letterpress and I was constantly learning how to better my art, including illustration, lettering, typography, the list goes on.
Tell us a little about your workspace.
I work from my home studio on the Central Coast and as I type this, I’m enjoying my view of a lush paddock filled with horses, sheep and my favourite new addition - a llama! When we bought our home two years ago, I had a custom, room-length desk and shelving system installed to create an effective studio space where I could design, create, package and meet with clients.
