About A Cloud Co. is a paper goods and gifts studio that’s all about capturing small moments in the big city. Founder Widad Franco creates art that channels her unique life experiences through a whimsical lens. In her illustrations, the vivid colors and vibrant textures that surrounded her in Ecuador meet the giant skylines and grand old buildings of big cities. She likes to focus in on the details of everyday city life, like bodega cats lounging on cardboard boxes, street performers playing sweet tunes, and hectic trains packed with colorful characters. Her watercolors are embellished with ink cross-hatching to conjure a playful style that catches the eye and teases a smile. All of these designs adorn cards, stickers, and other paper goods.

About A Cloud Co. is driven by the desire to make people happy and help them share a special connection through a small piece of carefully-made tangible art.

Widad’s story starts while growing up on the sunny coast of Ecuador, before having her life thoroughly impacted at 12-years-old by her very first visit to New York. There, she saw the Rockefeller Christmas Tree light up and was entranced. A move to this magical city of her dreams saw her pursuing a career in international TV news that involved reporting on space rocket launches at NASA, witnessing ancient chocolate making techniques in the Amazon, and hitting the campaign trail with presidential candidates. These events became sources of inspiration for her art as she decided that a life spent drawing was really the one for her and started her own business.
