Our Story

In 2017, More Than Words Lead Designer of 6 years, Kate Blyth took over the reins at More Than Words.  Kate has been key to the management and growth of More Than Words since its early days and has some fantastic fresh ideas to ensure the business remains the best original personalised art company in the UK.

Prior to this, More Than Words was launched in 2010 by creative designer Lisa Long. Lisa’s lifetime love of interiors, graphic design and typography, combined with a search to find a piece of personalised artwork for her own home, led her to follow her creative passion.

“I was struggling to find artwork that had it all – contemporary, premium quality yet reasonably priced, a great talking point and something that was unique and meaningful. So, after careful research to understand how I could produce my very own piece of high quality artwork, I created what is now the original ‘Memories Canvas’ to hang on our wall. A simple personalised collection of our favourite memories as a piece of ‘word art’ on a stunning canvas and in custom colours to match the room.”

Lisa then had several requests from friends and family to design something for them and from there More Than Words was born.  It went on on to create an award-winning global brand, commissioned by thousands of customers around the world. High profile clients include Dannii Minogue, journalist India Knight and comedian Michael McIntyre, and More Than Words artwork decorates the walls of well-known corporate clients such as ITV, Selfridges and Amazon.co.uk.

More Than Words designs have also featured on ITV and BBC, and in international home, wedding and children’s magazines and blogs – see press for more details.
