About

Our Visual Philosophy

Visual Philosophy is run by Liz Lyons and her husband Grant. Liz is a graphic designer from the UK, Grant is American. They married (for a Green card!) a long while back, and two kids, one dog, two businesses and a big transatlantic move later, are still together after 25 years!

'We’ve been running a design consultancy together for a long time, firstly in Utah, and, since 2000 in Oxford, UK. During the day we work on lovely projects for Colleges, hedge funds, luxury car brands, theatres and publishers. Our clients are great but sometimes it’s really nice to do something creative simply for its own sake, and with not a brief in sight.

'Some years ago, for similar reasons, we started a side line in greeting cards and gift wrap. We were pretty successful, with our products being carried by some big UK retailers but then our consultancy got really busy and it became hard to devote enough time to the cards business.

'We’d always vowed we would start Visual Philosophy up again, and so the idea of creating prints to sell on Etsy seemed a really great solution. Some of the prints we sell are based on our original card ideas, some of them are new, and it’s really nice to be able to spend time thinking up new ideas.

'Our inspiration comes from a magpie-like curiosity that is attracted by great use of colour, cool typography, the clean graphic lines of mid-century and Scandinavian design…. we love finding vintage elements of graphic design that can be used to create something modern that someone would want to hang on their wall. We try to create posters that we would happily hang on our own walls (which we do, though we’re rapidly running out of space!).

'We hope you'll find something among our growing collection of prints that appeals to your own visual philosophy! If you have ideas of things you'd like to see, please do get in touch. We can't promise anything, but are always interested in new ideas for lonely walls!'

Liz and Grant
