Did you know?

This design features a single pink rose, which traditionally symbolizes gratitude.


This design was likely conceived when Ingrid “Gocken” Jobs was a student of graphic design at the Konstakademin (Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts). Rose and Lily shows a sampling of indigenous Swedish flowers against a black background. The loose floral arrangement is typical of Gocken Jobs’s whimsical style.
