I am super proud of my friend Eszter Rabin of EmmaRose Papery. She took a big risk, and chucked the world of advertising (yeah!), bought a couple of old letter presses and started up shop in her basement garage. She has been busy ever since, most recently designing and printing an invitation for San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, and a whole slew of June weddings. She creates a lovely line of custom designed wedding invitations, stationery and cards that are uniquely personal, and has just introduced her baby line, which offers really sweet birth announcements, shower invitations and thank you notes.
Eszter is special because she really talks to her clients (she's an amazing and intuitive listener) and is inquisitive about the small details of the momentous events they are planning. She amazes her clients with truly personal and intimate graphic icons, incorporating unique aspects of their lives into her designs.
Originally from Hungary (I love her accent!) Eszter is a student of art in both Europe and the United States. EmmaRose Papery combines bits of her European culture and modern American simplicity. Eszter currently lives in San Francisco with her husband and their cat, Rose and dog LuLu. Lately, she is often found in the company of her clients, who not surprisingly, have become fast friends with this thoughtful, talented and authentic girl.
