Birds have been a pretty strong design trend for a while but often only featuring cutesy tweeting birds. I think it’s time the owl got its due! I’m not a particularly huge bird fan (crows at 4am can do that to a girl) but I have to say there are some great designs out there that turn the stoic, staring hooter into the perfect mascot for nature inspired stationery.
If you’re on Twitter, you’ll know about the fail whale graphic, which was designed by Yiying Lu. She does fantastic work and it’s worth checking out her site. She also has a line of cards, which can be found at cardstore.com including this owl design.
Etsy is always a great place to find unique stationery items and owl-themed pieces are no exception. There are hundreds of choices but here are a few that caught my eye.
