It’s been way too long since my last Etsy shop feature and I’m excited to get the ball rolling again! Whether you’re looking for a customized baby gift, a memorable birth announcement or an invitation that will surely get noticed, I’m certain you’ll want to check out The Village Press.
Who’s Behind The Village Press?
Frances Karulas is a web and graphic designer living and working out of Toronto. She caught the programming bug while taking an elective course en route to a biology degree at the University of Toronto. That single class led to switching majors from bio to computer science and so an IT geek was born!
Since then she’s worked a variety of programming jobs- from gigs at two of Canada’s largest banks, to interesting freelance jobs with some of Toronto’s top musicians and authors. Along the way has also developed a keen interest in graphic design. While web programming jobs can often be more technical than creative, working on graphic design projects allows Frances to really cultivate her artistic side. This combination of technology and imagination has helped build a very challenging and rewarding business.
In her free time (which I’m sure there is little of!), Frances also blogs about the adventures of her amazing two year old daughter Alexandra at 52newthings. Her web portfolio can be seen at Vaionet Media, while her graphic design work can be seen showcased in her Etsy shop The Village Press.
