WHAT I DO...
I'M A VISUAL STORYTELLER
I specialise in highly personal, storytelling, luxury wedding stationery and paper goods.
With over 2 decades experience in delivering creative briefs, Deabill & Quince tell your story through bespoke illustration, subtle messages and creative, beautiful and incredibly personal invitations and stationery that will leave your entire guest list inspired and excited from the moment it drops through their letterbox.
NICE TO MEET YOU...
I'm Freya Deabill, founder and designer at Deabill & Quince, award winning graphic designer, mum, wife and lover of leopard print, fizz & dinner parties, I have been creating beautiful graphics, brands and illustrations from my home studio for over a decade, and can't think of anything better.
WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW...
I AM A SPECIALIST
I am an expert in bespoke patterns, incorporating details from your personalities, heritage or indeed the day itself - often taking inspiration from the venues wallpaper, architecture or even the embroidery on the brides dress, and with a background in cartography and mapping I can also create the most beautiful bespoke maps to make the invitation experience as cohesive as possible.
I love to create intrigue and provoke happiness throughout my ranges and often help my couples chose wording that is less ‘traditional’ in place of more humorous, memorable or personal messages which resonate with their couples and guests.
LET'S HAVE A CUPPA
It starts with a story, your story.
My clients span the globe so if a face to face meeting isn't possible then we will make sure we either chat via zoom, on the phone or simply by email to really get to know each other and your requirements.
HOW I WORK...
ONLY THE BEST WILL DO
I work on a research, concept and development journey, engaging and listening to you at every point to make sure you are excited, exhilarated and inspired by the work I am creating - after all - its your wedding day we are visualising.
With over two decades experience in design it goes without saying I chose to work only with a selection of the best suppliers, printers and craftspeople to realise my designs, hand finishing each and every one of them myself and checking and packing them all by hand in my beautiful studio at the end of the garden behind the quince tree. I love what I do and take personal pleasure in making sure what you receive is truly exceptional.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
TheBr&newstudio LTD was born with specialist branch Deabill & Quince in 2012, and I haven't looked back since.
With over 20 years experience working in some of the most renowned design consultancies in London before starting up on my own. I have always been creative from a very early age - see more about my story in my blog post 'from mudpies to wedding stationery'.
OUT OF HOURS...
PAST LIFE : MUM LIFE
I am married to Steve, a superb Cabinet Maker, and we have 2 bundles of madness; Rowan and Hafren who keep us on our toes from around 6am everyday!
We live in a 1950s officers house in Oxfordshire, right on the doorstep of the beautiful Ridgeway and Cotswolds. We have recently welcomed a new addition to the family - our pizza oven, which we enjoy warming our cockles on with friends (when we can) eating delicious home made pizza!
