A personal note on YTR Creative Design Director, Yasmin Rahmatullah

From an early age Yasmin always remembers being a creative ‘little bean.’

During an Art Foundation course she developed a passion for producing patterns featuring intricate detailing and so as an undergraduate specialised in print and embroidery. 

After a placement designing cards with a well-known greetings card company, Marks and Spencer and graduating in Surface Pattern Design from the University of Huddersfield in 2006, Yasmin discovered she had a real passion for producing designs on a much smaller scale, embellishing each individual card. In 2008 Yasmin found her first full-time job working for a renowned greetings card company. For them she designed some of their best selling cards, for prestigious clients such as Asda, BHS and Wilkinsons.

In 2009 Yasmin went freelance for her card designs and also worked for the Press Association, specialising in the design and layout of many well-known UK magazines such as Woman, Woman's Own, Chat and Pick me Up.

Yasmin also designed, produced, marketed and personally sold a small selection of handmade cards, and also created exclusive bespoke stationery for weddings and christenings.

She set up her own business in 2009 and designed her first collection of greetings cards featuring captivating, pretty illustrations, which she exhibited at the Harrogate Home and Gift for the first time to great acclaim and received wonderful feedback. She still remembers the day when she took her first major order!

The business is now going from strength to strength. We currently work with eight UK agents and with the help of a small, expert team, who are dedicated to hand-finishing the cards and help get all the orders out on time. Yasmin is looking forward to expanding her ranges and creating many more new designs and collections for all occasions in 2013.
