Ros­alind Wil­son wins a Mark & Spencer de­sign com­pe­ti­tion

The Jewish Chronicle - - People -

FREE­LANCE GRAPHIC de­signer Ros­alind Wil­son has won a Marks & Spencer greet­ings-card com­pe­ti­tion.

Leeds-based Mrs Wil­son, 35, was vic­to­ri­ous in the Everyday Cute Char­ac­ter con­test, run in­ter­na­tion­ally by Tiger­print, a divi­sion of Hall­mark, the sales sup­plier for Marks & Spencer greet­ings cards and gift wrap. En­trants were in­vited to cre­ate a cute new char­ac­ter to be used across the greet- ing-cards range.

Mrs Wil­son’s Mo Mon­key was the winning en­try. “Hope­fully, Mo’s char­ac­ter will bring warm smiles to both sexes who re­ceive the card,” she tells Peo­ple. “ It was a joy cre­at­ing him.”

Aside from the £200 prize money, Mrs Wil­son be­lieves the back­ing from M&S and the ku­dos of the award will bring great ben­e­fits.

“Hav­ing their en­dorse­ment is very valu­able and has given me a ter- rific boost,” she says. She adds that her in­spi­ra­tion came from var­i­ous sources, but mainly from her two young chil­dren. “Just see­ing life through their eyes can be to­tally lib­er­at­ing, and of­ten gives me in­spi­ra­tion for my work.”

Ear­lier this year Mrs Wil­son was asked to de­sign Shana Tova cards for WIZO UK.

She is a mem­ber of the Beth Hamidrash Ha­gadol Syn­a­gogue on Street Lane.
