A Story to Tell
The story behind the company is derived from a fictional character, a gentleman named Mr Nosey Parker. In the late 1800's he would famously cycle around the grounds of the company on his penny farthing bicycle, wearing top hat and tails, cheerily greeting both employees and anyone else he may come across.
He was interested in people as individuals and the stories they had to tell. Community and communicating with others was what he loved and how he lived his life.
Mr Nosey Parker may be a fictional character but his aspirations live within many of us...sometimes we just need a little encouragement to reach out to others or even let them reach out to us.
Nosey Parkers is about belonging, communicating, sharing, giving and receiving. What may seem like a small gesture to us, could mean a lot to someone else. Through illustrations we hope to help make this happen.
About the Founder & Illustrator
Hi, I'm Caroline Obbard, an english born, now Australian, graphic designer and illustrator.
I am based in Perth, Western Australia, which was the inspiration behind my first range of greeting cards, Windswept.
I tend to draw ideas for my illustrations from experiences and feelings. I aim to create a narrative that provokes an emotional response with the end user.
