Lois Watson Clapp | VP of Creative and Product Development

Lois is the VP of Creative and Product Development at IG Design Group USA, a leader in gift packaging and greetings.

After receiving her BA (Hons) at De Montfort University in Leicester in 1995 she accepted a position in design in IG Design Group’s studio just outside London, England.

Recognized by her peers as one of the pre-imminent design directors in a global industry, she accepted the position of Creative Director in Atlanta, Georgia in 2007 and moved to the United States. Beginning with a team of eight designers, a focus on vision and strategy, and aided by large amounts of english breakfast tea and more than a few late nights, the Atlanta studio grew to the current status as an international design powerhouse.

Employing over 50 designers and product developers under her direction, IG Design Group USA has grown into a design center of excellence with products on display at every major American retail outlet. Her design team creates some of the most outstanding and innovative product in the gift wrap and celebrations industry.

Lois’ strength lies not just in a keen sense of design and a finger on the pulse of artistic trends, but in cultivating the most talented staff in the industry. Originally slated to work in the Atlanta studio for only three years, Lois decided to stay after meeting her husband and then having two amazing boys. While her heart will never truly leave England, she is proud to call Atlanta her new home.
