HeraldBlack cards


Stephen Dow is originally from East Belfast, and his designs are strongly influenced by the brutalist architecture of the Ulster Museum, which sits opposite our shop. We are delighted to stock this range of abstract and striking cards.

I am an artist and printmaker having studied at the Belfast School of Art, graduating in 1997. I worked for John Rocha in Dublin later that year, printing fabrics for men’s and womenswear collections. My work background also includes over 10 years home accessories merchandising for Habitat & The Conran Shop before establishing my studio heraldblack in 2014.
