Eileen is a graphic designer with a BFA in graphic design from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). She also has a background in drawing, painting, printmaking, and photography. She lives in Brooklyn and has a passion for creating paper goods, especially hand-made invitations and other custom design work. In 2007, Eileen was diagnosed with stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at the young age of 26. Eileen views her diagnosis as a wake up call that brought her to a higher state of awareness. Taking time off from life to heal, Eileen decided that she was going to focus her attention on creating art. Her unique approach allowed her to transform her skills into Design Parlour. Now cancer free and based in Brooklyn, NY, Design Parlour offers conscious design and quality graphics.
Paper goods should be one-of-a-kind, extraordinary, AND have a conscience. The Design Parlour aesthetic speaks to people that want printed matter that will not only be memorable and handmade, but conscious of the environment as well. Eileen uses a combination of recycled paper, recycled envelopes and windpower paper. Design Parlour provides the pleasant feeling of receiving stationery without any of the factory, mass produced connotations.
