Poet and Painter is a flourishing contemporary greetings card publisher based in England, on the outskirts of the heritage city of Bath.
Award winning artist Lucy Creed established Poet and Painter in 2015 to showcase her artwork as greetings cards, featuring humorous verse written by her good friend and popular British poet Trevor Parsons.
The hand-penned drawing and wordplay were an instant success, and Lucy went on to develop the brand to include more of her own humour and bold illustration. In 2017 Lucy was joined by her old art school sidekick and wordplay aficionado Bryn Dineen, and they quickly discovered that the combination of Lucy’s twitching paintbrush with Bryn’s break speed wit created something special. Their shared love of visual arts and an untethered approach to creativity has earned Poet and Painter the privilege of working with some of the UK’s most innovative and respected brands and industry individuals.
“Love, warmth and communication are the touchstones that make us who we are. We aim to be high in wit and low in cheese. Keeping things funny, empathic and relevant in a world where, reaching out to those we love with positive messaging and humour is as vital now as it ever was. “
