Get to Know: Bethany Robertson
This Tuesday, February 14th, 11AM-7PM (Valentine’s Day!) Bethany Robertson – the illustrator behind Loveless Designs – hosts a Valentine’s Day trunk show at Love STORY! Her work features florals, pattern, and hand-drawn typography – perfect for an elevated card that goes beyond the mass-produced standard. We caught up with the maker of pretty things to chat about her brand and some of her New York favorites.
