A happy hello from our Founders, Roz Nazerian and Nic Graham.
The two friends met whilst studying at art school and quickly became the best of friends. Their commercial partnership journey in design began in 1997 when they started their London design studio, Minx Creative.
This year they and their talented creative team launched Storigraphic.
We sat them down and asked some quick-fire questions to feed our inquisitive minds.
What’s the joy of what you do?
Roz: We get to do what we love. Every day.
We’re ideas people, problem-solvers and practising designers. We work with much diversity and across many mediums, all types of creative briefs. It’s a true privilege having the freedom to work without layers of internal politics and parameters.
What’s the challenge of what you do?
Nic: Balancing home and work life. As a working mum, it’s been a constant challenge getting it at a good place with everything. I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re doing well every day. Roz is very good at reminding me when I have lapse days!
How did Storigraphic come about?
Roz: Nic and I had spoken about publishing books for so many years. In late 2018 we could see an opening for an idea we had had come to reality. The crossover from what we do at our design studio to Storigraphic is a huge advantage, it seemed right to develop the idea and give everything we could to realise it as a business.
Nic: We wanted to sum up the loving bonds and connections people have in life through the medium of print and heart-warming, slightly quirky narrative. A keepsake. We hope our books resonate, giving everyone a happy feeling.
Three books so far, any more?
Nic: At least three more planned next year.
Roz: Our latest one ‘Spaced Out With You‘ only released this week and we are loving it. We’re keen to give each book the time it needs to settle in and reach out before launching the next one.
Nic: Oh, we do have a limited-edition ‘Hey You’ Valentine’s book launching in January 2020 too!
The ‘Will You?’ book ends with a question. If you sent one to each other, what would you ask?
Nic: That’s a good one! I’m thinking it would be: Will you continue to give me honest feedback?
Roz: Hmmmm, that’s a great question! Mine would be: Will you always be my best friend?
Finally, what’s your favourite planet?
Both: Saturn! (And planet Earth!)
