Me and my text messages.


 

So, this is me, Sharon Caddie and I'm a freelance Art Director based in Glasgow. Since graduating from Glasgow School Of Art I've worked on many brands, big and small, including the BBC, Royal Bank of Scotland, Clydesdale Bank including hotel chains, retail stores, yoga experts, autism professionals and even the world of pole dancers over the years and won a few awards for it all. It's been a varied ol' life I can tell you. You can check out my work over at caddieand.co if you fancy a nosy. And if you want to collaborate then just say the word. 

Text From A Friend started when I was heartily amused by the text messages some of my friends sent me. I scribbled their quips, posted them on social media. And so began requests to turn them into cards and prints.

I've always had a passion for paper and the smell of print (who doesn't?) and never been one to produce a paper product without using the finest of materials. The cards are initially hand drawn and made using only the poshest of paper and a traditional printing technique with a hot foil press to create fine pieces of (sometimes) anti-social media.
