I like slow not fast, quality not quantity, old in a new way, I do things differently, I love letters and words.
After many years of working 60-80 hour weeks in corporate environments I decided to take control of my own career and resigned from my job as an associate director of a design firm to start my own practice from home.
Its a pretty scary move making the leap from a secure job and a comfortable salary to gamble on yourself. But they say "do what you love and love what you do" so thats precisely what I am doing! And my business is going from strength to strength.
I traded corporate and refined for playful and bold and I began designing and making a range of typographic products including decor, toys, accessories, clothing, books, staitonery and art. I apply my love for letters and passion for printmaking to products people can use and enjoy.
I am all about the process, I love to draw, research, experiment and test. I use, letterpress, linocut, woodcut, gocco, screen printing and giclee to apply ink to paper, cloth and board. Each product is environmentally responsible, of the highest quality, great value and made by me with love and passion for what I do.
Now my working week is split between design consultancy
(with a large focus on typography and lettering) and my own self generated typographic adventures. You will find the outcome of a lot of those adventures here in my Etsy store.
Nicole A Phillips

I am a designer obsessed with all things letterform related!
Each of the products on sale here are designed and produced in Brisbane Australia.
I also welcome custom orders, I offer clients bespoke & unique design solutions as well as custom relief pressure printing via letterpress, lino or woodcut. Please get in touch to talk about your custom design ideas and needs.
I offer a range of products and services, the items for sale in this store are ready to purchase limited edition products from my following ranges;
Glyphs & Graphemes - 1 of typographic artworks
Typograph.her - Products ready for sale available as limited edition runs of 10, 50, 100
Nic.knacks - Collaborations with other designers and artists.
Many of the products are printed on recycled paper, cotton and luxurious boards with handset antique wood and metal type from my collection, some are my own hand lettering that has been carved in wood or silkcut lino with engraving tools, while others are exposed to UV light and turned into silk screens or hardened in polymer.
While much of the range is printed some pieces are cut and folded from metals with the expertise and advice of my very talented husband Mike.

I prefer to use Australian Air express or Aus Post services. However the size and weight of your package as well as your location will dictate which carrier handles your package. International Airmail sent with Aus Post is not always "trackable" online nor is the parcel insured. If you have a preference of carrier or if you require parcel protection insurance or other shipping upgrade please get in touch to discuss options and pricing prior to purchase.
International shipping does take time (usually around 12-15 working days to the US) and I can not guarantee a delivery time due to possible delays with customs.
Australian customers I will send your parcels via express post which provides next day delivery to major centres.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please let me know if you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason and I will consider appropriate solutions on a case-by-case basis.
Please note the following prior to purchase;
Colour can vary on monitors - the callibration, quality and environment of a monitor all effect how a colour looks. I ensure my monitor is correctly calibrated and the photographs of each product reflect their true colour. I can not guarantee the colour you see on screen is as accurate.
All of my pieces are handmade - some subtle variations do occur.
Much of my type I use to print with is antique and particularly the wood type may show signs of wear, scuffing and in somecases attack by troublesome insects!
Letterpress involves using relief to manually press ink into quality papers. Each piece is inked and pressed seperately part of the charm with hand generated pieces are those variations and imperfections.
My photographs try to reflect the true nature of the piece but if it is not what you expect please do get in touch. I want you to get the same enjoyment from your order that I find when producing these pieces!...
