a little bit about Letter C design

Letter C design is all about creating cheer in the everyday
... by offering paper goods with endless possibilities - whether it is sending notes, writing down bright ideas or adding that special touch to packages.

Letter C design is an independent paper goods studio started in 2005. the designs and products are constantly changing and growing, but everything is created with the same vision ... clean, simple design and a touch of whimsy. the paper, packaging and everything in between is made with eco-friendly materials - from recycled paper to biodegradable bags.

collections range from mix&match patterns to simply drawn illustrations and pressed foil stamped goods - all designed to add a little cheer.

the C behind Letter C design

cindy slater - the owner and designer behind Letter C design was always going to be an architect. after graduating from the university of minnesota* with a degree in architecture she decided buildings were just too large. she moved back to connecticut (after a road trip to alaska), worked in marketing and went back to school. while getting her masters of arts in information design Letter C design was born. now she spends her days making little cards, notebooks for on the go and lots of teeny tiny stickers.

when designing and creating new products cindy takes lessons learned in her past, inspiration from the everyday and thinks about the future. from drawing her illustrations to working out how the patterns and colors come together she enjoys creating paper goods that are not only functional but also hopefully bring someone a little cheer.

*why the university of minnesota? in high school cindy studied a year in norway and minnesota offered a minor in norwegian. not something she uses everyday, but you never know when speaking norwegian will come in handy.
