Georgina Fihosy is the creative behind AfroTouch Design (the former Special Touch Designs), an Afrocentric stationery brand that is unique among black-owned businesses. Fihosy creates urban greeting cards and gift items for all occasions and seasons. She started what was then Special Touch Designs in the summer of 2015. At the time, she was on maternity leave with her second child. She was frustrated with the lack of representation in the greeting card industry. She wanted to find a card for a friend who had had a baby but couldn’t find one with a black baby or one that reflected her and her family and this beautiful occasion. Fihosy wanted something fun and urban - so she decided to make one herself. That was how her black-owned business, Special Touch Designs, was born. Fihosy is self-taught and learned how to make and design cards via Google University.
