Who are we?
Elena Drew This is run by me, Elena, after graduating from Brighton University in 2020.
After studying Textile Print and Graphic Design, I felt a need to do more to help the climate crisis, whilst also utilising my design skill.
So I started Elena Drew This - creating a design brand whose products raise awareness of the current climate crisis - aiming to encourage thought and discussion around sustainability and what we can all do to help.
Taking often complex research and simplifying it into eye-catching graphics and designs, the main brand aim is to be informative and educational, without being preachy or greenwashing.
I believe if more people are made aware of the climate issues we face, the more positive action that will happen.
Sustainability is at the absolute core of what I do, with all products being made in the UK with 100% recycled, recyclable or biodegradable materials and packaging, and having 1 tree planted for every order.
What do we sell?
My first range of products is a collection of greetings cards, all with an environmental-based design on the front, and a brief explanation of the design on the back of the card. All cards are left blank inside for your own message.
I am currently developing wrapping paper and art-prints all with the same climate message - watch this space!
Alongside product and print creation, I also do freelance work for charities, social enterprises, or sustainable businesses - helping them to raise awareness of their cause, or to gain traction on a campaign.
