It’s been a little while in the making, but the new site’s finally here! All your wedding stationery and designy goodness in one place. Charlie Loves Lucy is now Claire Hawkes (that’s me).

I developed Charlie Loves Lucy as a brand focussed primarily on wedding and social stationery. Since setting up I haven’t ever stopped working with clients on a variety of design and illustration commissions. I love working on a mixture of projects – it keeps me passionate and constantly pushes me to develop my craft as a designer. I’d love to share those projects with you. This is where the decision has come from to bring everything together under Wanting to have everything in one place (along with the completely personal service I offer) means it makes perfect sense to be working under my own name.

Design is my passion – wedding related or not – and so as well as moving to I’m planning on sharing favourite projects with you, along with personal updates and any design finds, through blog posts and social media. You can take a look at some of my more recent projects on the portfolio pages. The new site also has it’s very own shop where you’ll be able to order prints, greetings cards and wedding stationery.

I’m really excited to be working under my own name and being able to share everything with you in one place. If there’s anything you’d like to see or if you have any questions at all make sure you get in touch.

Thanks for taking the time to have a little look at the new site.
