Rocket 68 is designed & run by Trinidad born Illustrator and designer Jill White.

Jill has worked in a design studio for 16 years producing packaging., as well as freelance illustration for editorial work. In 2006 she started teaching graphics design, and art and design in a further education college in Somerset.
The company was born out of a love for the receiving of tasteful cards. ''The daunting future of the 'E' card will never replace the joy of opening a card sent to you which you can proudly display on your mantel piece" Rocket68 cards and prints are stocked in a multitude of independent UK stores as well as some of the larger chain outlets, & major museum shops.
Recently the company has exported to stockists in NZ, US, Hong Kong and Europe. Jill has collaborated with many companies, illustrating for Hallmark, Marks & Spencer, Dunoon, Timbergram and many more.
Rocket 68 has recently expanded it's presence to the High Street (well a road in the village!) Jill is now working in her new studio above the Rocket68 Shop in Martock Somerset. The shop is a platform for the brand Rocket68 & sells all of the Rocket68 products. The designing and ideas formulate upstairs! The online orders are packed and distributed from this site.
We now take cards at the Rocket68 Shop in Martock!
