January 13, 2010 (Newswire.com) -
The Whitney English Company today announced the expansion of
its industry presence with the acquisition of Askew Design. Askew Design is a Manhattan-based company focused on glamorous and modern invitations for parties.
Sophie Askew, who has served in lead design positions at theknot.com, Conde Nast,and Tiffany & Co., founded the company in 2004 when she moved to New York. A native Southerner, she saw a void in paper designs that combined sophisticated high design
and a whimsical Southern gentility. With Askew Design, she sought to fill that niche and now adds her exclusive line of invitations to The Whitney English Company brand.
"With Askew Design in our portfolio we have an enchanting option for event planners looking to make a statement and set the tone for their parties from the very start, said Whitney Kolb, CEO of The Whitney English Company. "Sophie Askew is one the most
talented artists that I know - she channels adorable. We are honored to incorporate her line into our portfolio; we know that retailers and event planners alike will love her designs."
For years, The Whitney English Company has been a trusted resource in the social expression industry with brands like Whitney English and Hicks Paper Goods. The Whitney English Company is committed to providing that same quality, customer care and service for Askew Design. The Whitney English Company will handle customer
service, marketing, sales and fulfillment for the Askew Design brand.
"Going with The Whitney English Company will allow Askew Design to immediately expand its brand nationally, expose more people to my work and bring them into the Askew Design fold. In these times especially, people are looking for clean, modern design that has a softness that evokes kindness and gentility," said Sophie Askew. "The Whitney English Company understands my needs and desires as a designer and has a proven track record of success."
Askew Design invitations will be available from retailers nationwide and online at www.lemontreepaperie.com in February 2010.
The Whitney English Company sets itself apart with its low error rate, quick turnaround, excellent customer support and optional integrated accounting system available for every client. For more information on Askew Design or The Whitney English Company
