Our online store has been up and running now a few months and we have had over 10,000 visitors to our site so we thought it was time for a proper introduction! Dios Designs was created by Chloe, a mum of two children who lives in Southsea, Hampshire in the United Kingdom. The name 'Dios' Designs comes from our two little helpers Didi & Osas aged 5 and 2. Chloe is responsible for creating the designs, marketing and social media management and customer service and Didi and Osas help with fulfilling orders and provide lots of inspiration and creative input! We do also receive a lot of help, support and inspiration from family and friends who wish to remain nameless.
We started creating Milestone Cards in February and our first product was a set of pregnancy milestone cards to celebrate each week of pregnancy in a cute animal design. From there, we expanded our range, introducing our popular chalkboard floral design in April and our range of Alternative Milestone Cards in May. We chose Milestone Cards as we loved the concept of them to help record each milestone and although lots of photos were taken of Didi and Osas when they were younger, we would not be able to remember on what date they achieved some of the important milestones. We wanted to create some different and unique designs from the commercially produced packs of milestone cards. Whilst creating these cards, we reflected on the fact that Didi was born at 36 weeks and didn't meet all of the traditional milestones and definitely didn't meet them all on time! This is how our range of Alternative Milestone Cards was born. We wanted to highlight some common and funny events that happen with a new baby through to toddler age and to celebrate these alternative milestones as not all babies meet the traditional milestones.
We also make personalised bunting and personalised prints and we have just launched two great new products; Pregnancy Milestone & Reality Cards & Mummy Milestone Cards. Please add us on social media to keep an eye out for new products as we have lots of fantastic ideas up our sleeves!
