Black Ant Australia has designed an exclusive greeting card for Ramada Ballina Byron. It was designed right here in Northern Rivers and made sustainably in Australia using post-recycled card and vegetable-based inks.
Black Ant Australia is a local design business created by Danielle Byer Greenslade.
Danielle’s professional background was originally in textile design and sportswear production. Danielle completed an MA in design history and is fascinated by its connection to social history.
When she settled in the Northern Rivers, she decided to create Black Ant Australia as a way to showcase our region’s abundance of natural beauty and heritage architecture.
“The Northern Rivers is full of so much personality and fascinating history and I wanted to celebrate these aspects”, she says.
In addition to Black Ant Australia’s own range of cards and tea towels, Danielle creates exclusive designs for a variety of local businesses that reside in heritage building and/or beautiful locations. Check out the online store at www.blackantaustralia.net.au
Why the name Black Ant Australia?
“Black Ant was my dad’s nickname for me when I was a baby” she laughs. “I had black eyes and black hair and crawled around a lot”.
These beautiful, exclusive greeting cards can be purchased for $3.50 at our Hotel reception located at 2 Martin Street, Ballina NSW.
