GEORGIE RIGBY, founder & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Creative director and the inspiration behind Rigby Design House based in the heart of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, where Georgie runs her very popular art workshops and bespoke stationery business.
A Graduate from Leeds College of Art & Design, Georgie trained as a designer for Smallbone of Devizes and has many of her designs gracing the homes of Yorkshire and further afield. From there a move into the world of television saw Georgie taking on new challenges working in the design departments of such popular network programmes as Family Affairs, Hollyoaks and Heartbeat. When her husband had to relocate to the USA, Georgie took the opportunity to join the Arts Council of Princeton and there to work with children and teens, some of whom were in care and facing great challenges. Georgie helped them express themselves through art encouraging them and helping their confidence to grow through creative workshops, camps and exhibitions, and it was while at Princeton she met Kim Moulder, Design Director for Rigby Design House.
Since returning to Yorkshire, Georgie has become a mother to two (now teenage) children and continues to run kids art workshops inspiring the next generation of budding artists and, with Kim, providing wedding and event stationery artwork and their art and consultancy services.
KIM MOULDER, DESIGN DIRECTOR
Kim is an artist and designer based in the US, and a graduate of Auburn University School of Fine Art. After college, she spent about ten years working as a Graphic Designer before starting a family. Since then she has worked as an artist and freelance designer creating a range of work from printed materials to website design.
She continues to combine her primary art techniques including watercolour, acrylic, collage and surface pattern design with her graphic design skills and offers these works for sale online. Her art has sometimes been described as an "eclectic sophistication." Kim welcomes opportunities for licensing and her artwork can often be found exhibited in central New Jersey venues.
Having been friends since their days in Princeton, Kim was thrilled to join Georgie in 2016 to collaborate on stationery design and assist with the daily design needs for Rigby Design House. The collaboration has resulted in something very special.
