Instagram We Love: @Lucy_Mail Makes a Gorgeous Case for Snail Mail
The designer-illustrator documents one-of-a-kind artsy envelopes on her under-the-radar Instagram.
When you were a little kid, the best gift you could give your parents for any occasion was a homemade card. Now, thanks to Lucy Halcomb, aka @lucy_mail, that's basically true again. A web designer by day—she's collaborated with brands from Bobbi Brown to New York City Ballet—Halcomb's also got a gift for hand-drawn typography and illustration, which is what her very-cool Insta account showcases in the form of artsy envelopes and postcards.
Her painted pieces are a little bit Rifle Paper Co., a touch Kate Schelter, and a whole lot of cheeky chicness. With just over 4,000 followers, her 71-week-young project is still flying under the radar, but we predict that's about to change. Pretty please, can we get these beauties printed up? We promise to write our grandmas more!
