About

whimsical bug, fruit, veggie and critter designs on kids clothing, tote bags and note cards ~ made in NYC!

Bugged Out is a line of my whimsical bug, fruit, veggie and critter designs available on clothing, tote bags, notecards and other items. The name Bugged Out has a very personal meaning and has to do with my diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis in 1998. That really bugged me out! I formed an MS Walk team and called it “Bugged Out". Every year I designed a new team T-shirt with one of my bugs, and every year so many people commented on my T-shirts and asked where they could buy them! So after a few years I started making bug things for other people, and in 2007 Bugged Out, the company, was born!

One of our first bug customers, the “Shop in the Garden” of the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG), commissioned me to design kid-friendly fruits and veggies for an exclusive line of products for their "Edible Garden Festivals" in 2009 and 2010. These designs are now also available at Bugged Out.

Over the last couple of years I added “the don’t bug me” collection to Bugged Out - the “nighty night” bedbug, the "I (heart) new york" cockroach, the mosquito “stinging New York, New York”, the "I dove NY" pigeon, the rat munching NY and the "I (heart) Nuts" squirrel.

Meet the Bugged Out team: me, Dina, and my husband Gerd! I am a trained architect and worked in the field for almost 20 years, on high-end residential and commercial projects in New York City and internationally; Gerd, a solar engineer in Germany, ended up in the NYC IT world. Nowadays we both run Bugged Out full time.

I draw my Bugged Out designs in Adobe Illustrator. Well, actually, for the first few bug designs I used my architectural program, AutoCad! Some of my designs are simple and basic (like the ant), while others are much more complex. I always research the real thing to come up with a simplified but still based-on-real-life design (like the bedbug - who knows what a bedbug actually looks like?). It takes a lot of tweaking until I am satisfied with a design!

Gerd and I print, score, cut and package all of our note cards in our NYC home studio. We screen print all of our apparel and tote bags in our screen printing shop in Long Island City, Queens.

A percentage of the proceeds from Bugged Out sales goes directly to Multiple Sclerosis research at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
