The Harold's Planet Story

'Harold's Planet' is one of our best loved ranges.  This most endearing Harold's Planet Creators - Lisa Swerling & Ralph Lazar
character was conceived and created by husband and wife team Lisa Swerling & Ralph Lazar while living on an island in the Seychelles in 1999. Since then Harold's Planet greetings cards have sold worldwide in the millions, several Harold's Planet books have been published, and the soft-footed, bobbly-nosed character has appeared on TV, in newspapers (including the FT and The Scotsman) and all over the web.

Lisa studied Politics and Economics at Oxford University. Ralph Studied Law & Economics in Cape Town and at the LSE. The couple now live in Northern California where they continue to create wonderful card designs for the Harold's Planet range.
