ATLANTA, GA – IG Design Group Americas, Inc. (“Design Group Americas”) announced today the launch of its new NIQUEA.D® greeting card collection by Dominique Schurman.
Imagine a world of simple pleasures. A world with a natural pace and rhythm in which to marvel at the starry sky, to daydream on the sandy shore and to breathe pure mountain air. This is the world of NIQUEA.D. A world where moments, relationships and gestures of kindness are noteworthy, remarkable and magnificent.
With the launch of the NIQUEA.D greeting card collection, founder Dominique Schurman, formerly of Schurman Fine Papers, is charting a future shaped by modern, relevant and elegant design. “In partnership with Design Group Americas, my new NIQUEA.D brand collection is like nothing else in the market. It is aspirational yet authentic… and is designed to capture the imagination of those who gather enrichment through treasured relationships,” said Ms. Schurman.
The perfect card given at the right time is a priceless gift and can become a moment to be cherished for years to come. With featured artists and designers from around the world, the brand is a synthesis of curated looks that are elegant, beautiful, simple, worldly, and also funny, quirky and unexpected. “This new collection reflects the culmination of Dominique’s work, and her experience designing greeting cards and personal expression products that are unique, differentiated and extraordinary. The collection is truly special, and the brand will fill a void in the market for today’s discerning consumer,” said Gideon Schlessinger, CEO of Design Group Americas.
With a business sense built on her background in English literature and her love of the written word, along with a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, Dominique joined her family company, Schurman Fine Papers, in 1982. Over the years, through focused efforts on retail, franchising, wholesale and e-commerce, Dominique helped to grow the business into an international enterprise and helped to develop the PAPYRUS® brand into a household name, with the business eventually selling the brand to American Greetings in 2009. During this time, Dominique also created new brands, such as PAPER DESTINYTM, XOXO DOMINIQUETM and NIQUEA.D, her signature brand.
