Hi, I’m Lollie, welcome to my little corner of the Web. I just thought I’d share a bit about myself and why I started Ducks In A Row.
Long story short, I studied Printed Textiles at Winchester School of Art. I graduated with a BA Hons in 2011. I went on to design scarves for Liberty London, a capsule clothing collection for Wallis, Arcadia, scarves for Lola Rose and I sold prints to Jigsaw and other high street brands. I entered design competitions and won the Ideal Homeshow Wallpaper Design of the Year Award 2012. In 2013 I decided I wanted to learn something new and took the opportunity to work as an interior designer for a small business located in Marlborough, Wiltshire. I was there for 2 years before another opportunity arose and I moved on to work as a designer for a greeting cards and gift publisher where I stayed for 4 years. All of this experience combined has lead me full circle back to where I started in printed textiles but with so much more knowledge for design and illustration. Something I truly love.
I left the greeting card industry in 2018 after the birth of my first baby, Oscar. I then decided to be a full time Mum which was the best decision I ever made however I found myself missing having that creative outlet everyday and that’s when Ducks In A Row began. I’ve since had another baby, a girl called Lola. They are the inspiration behind this small but growing business. Every design you will see has been designed and illustrated by myself with so much love. Although the collection is small it is growing, just very slowly but surely whilst I also try and balance life as a single mum of 2. This website has also been built by myself. Learning as I go, so please don’t hesitate to let me know if something isn’t working correctly. Thank you for visiting!Lollie Dunbar :)
