About Duck Blue
Since Ruth was a child she loved to draw and paint, endlessly doodling
in her homework notebook instead of studying. Her passion for art brought
her to study Graphic Design in the Dublin Institute of Technology
followed by a Postgraduate Diploma in Advertising.
Soon after graduating from art college Ruth moved to Italy & Scotland
to gain experience before finally moving home to work in one of
Ireland’s leading design agencies Neworld Associates.
In 2009, following the birth of her first child, Ruth established Duck Blue,
an illustration and design studio based in Maynooth, Co. Kildare.
Here she creates beautiful bespoke cards and illustrations for all occasions
from birth announcements to keepsake wedding cards. Her ethos is simple,
she wants to create cards you want to keep... and she does this by using a simple
clean illustration style, lots of white space and beautiful textured papers.
All this make her a popular choice amongst celebrities, visitors to Ireland
and locals alike.
