Introducing Alfie's Studio
"The universe is made of stories, not of atoms"
Whether you are an individual with adventure in your soul wanting to share your stories, an independent business getting serious about going places or a retailer looking to collaborate on a custom range for your shop, I'm here for you.
- Muriel Rukeyser
Alfie's Studio - for sharing life's adventures.
I believe that everyone has the power to create their own adventures and carve a narrative they can be proud of, and that sharing those adventures can be just as important as living them.
From note cards and greetings to tell your stories on and custom stationery suites for sharing big moments, to design, branding and dreaming big for your business, I design from the place that matters - the pit of my stomach and the bottom of my heart, your stories are precious and telling them well matters to me.
I use recycled and responsible materials whenever I can. I design, print, finish and package under one roof (unless it's something extra special I can't do like foil blocking and then I'll always try to use someone local) and generally use my village post office to send the goods on their way to you. I have a genuine care about looking after this magnificent planet that we are living on and try to create the smallest footprint on it that I possibly can.
About me, Nicole Clark
- founder and owner of Alfie's Studio
I grew up creating adventures in the woods, collecting grasses and flowers with my nana whilst my dad fished with my granddad, perfecting my skill of making the perfect sand fort against the incoming tide and learning plant names.
My teenage years were spent dying my hair all manner of colours, painting every nail a different shade, oil painting or making wire sculptures coated in smashed glass (my signature piece at the time) going to concerts/gigs, sneaking off to London for the music shops in Camden / gallery hopping and writing letters to a boy whose house was three roads away from mine.
I like to mooch about the back roads of cities. Taking in the local architecture, discovering their industrial past and uncovering hidden gems. I like to sit in cafe windows watching the world go by with a pot of tea on the go. I like writing proper post to catch up with friends. I believe that if you have something to tell, you should tell it well. I feed my soul on music, film, literature and outdoor adventures. I have an oddly opposing love of city living and having a garden to tend to. I love maps. I define my work, it doesn't define me. I love curling up in front of a crackling fire watching the snow drift down outside in winter.
I have a Mr, 2.5 children, a deep love of tiramisu and a hundred year old house that whistles on a really windy night.
