Artists We Love: Anna Rifle Bond

Rifle Paper Co. is a prolific design studio started by husband and wife duo Anna and Nathan Bond. Founded in 2008 in Winter Park, Florida, Rifle Paper Co. has grown to a company of more than 150 people and has recently collaborated with a number of huge brands – some results of which I am absolutely sure you have seen advertised on your favorite social media platforms – such as Keds, homestyle brand Hygge & West, and Pequin Books.

Originally rooted in stationery design, Rifle Paper Co.’s iconic style of whimsical florals and metallic accents has had a huge impact on popular design in the last decade. Rifle Paper Co.’s extraordinary success all began with an iPhone case, sold at Anthropologie, who was–believe it or not–Bond’s first customer. From there, the company has exploded with popularity. With products ranging from gift wrap to cards to shoes to temporary tattoos they really do experiment in quite a few different media.

Anna Bond is Rifle Paper Co’s Creative Director, while her husband and co-founder is their CEO. Anna’s background is in illustration and graphic design. After moving to Florida to work for a magazine, she switched gears and began to work on Rifle Paper Co.’s inaugural stationary line–everything else is history!

 

I had heard of Rifle Paper Co. back in 2010 or so when I went to the NYC Gift Show, but I vividly remember reading Design*Sponge’s “A Day in the Life” featuring Anna in 2014 and being awed by the company’s prolific growth. It’s no surprise that with a work ethic like Anna’s, she’s been able to grow her company rapidly in such a short period of time.

If you have a fondness for illustration, design, and repeated pattern, Rifle Paper Co. is a must know – they even recently had a hand in illustrations for a new edition of classic novels such as Anne of Green Gables, Little Women and Alice in Wonderland (and beautiful editions at that!).
