Hello!

I'm Shiv, a Scottish & English Designer and Illustrator, working across digital and print with 10 years experience in the giftware industry. I currently work in-house at a home decor & giftware brand in England, but love creating even more designs in my spare time - which you can find here, in my Etsy shop! Creating artwork has been my absolute love in life since I was about 8 years old, and I feel lucky that over the years my career has allowed me to grow artistically in ways I never thought possible...

I work across a variety of areas such as surface design, packaging, giftware, stationery, homewares, product design, greeting cards and web using hand-drawn and digital Illustration combined with lively typography. It makes me so happy to be able to create quirky, fun + unique artwork to bring a bit of colour + joy to homes all over the world.

If you fancy having anything customised, or you have a particular idea you'd like me to create for you, please send me a message. I'd love to hear from you!

Frequently asked questions
When will I get my order?

It takes 2-7 days to fulfill an order, after which it’s shipped out. The shipping time depends on your location, but can be estimated as follows:

Pillows, Stickers + Art Prints (Digital Downloads are instant):

If you're in the USA: (Currently 2-15 days due to Covid19 delays) usually its 2 - 8 business days

Europe: (Currently 2-15 days due to Covid19 delays) usually its 2 - 8 business days

International: 10-20 business days

I will update the above as soon as there are any changes.

Where will my order ship from?

For my Pillows, Stickers + Art Prints I use a brilliant Printers for independent artists + designers that are based in the USA, but they can ship from facilities worldwide! This way I can provide the best delivery costs I can to all my customers internationally.
Everything is designed by myself in my wee flat in Birmingham, England.

Will I be charged customs for my order?

For pillows, stickers + art prints an additional customs and tax fee can occur on international orders. This fee is not in my control and is assessed by your local customs office. Customs policies vary widely for every country so please check with your local customs office directly to see if they apply duties and taxes to your purchases.

My order should be here by now, but I still don't have it. What should I do?

Before getting in touch with me, it would be great if you could check the below first:

● Check your shipping confirmation email for any mistakes in the delivery address.
● Ask your local post office if they have your package.
● Stop by your neighbors in case the courier left the package with them.

Package theft is on the rise. If you're expecting a home delivery and know you won't be in to accept it, use an address where you'll be!

If the shipping address was correct, and the package wasn't left at the post office or at your neighbor’s, please message me with your order number so I can look into this for you. If you did find a mistake in your delivery address, I can send you a replacement order, but shipping will be at your own cost.

How are your products made?

I illustrate + design everything from my flat in Birmingham, England. I use a mixture of hand-drawn, painted and digitally altered techniques to create all my artwork from scratch. For my pillows, art prints + stickers I work with a fantastic, high-quality printers for independent artist + designers and they're based in the USA. They also have locations worldwide, so depending on where you are, your orders are printed and shipped from the facility that can do it most efficiently. I wouldn't be able to create some of my products without their expertise + print technology and so this allows me to sell my products internationally + provide the best delivery costs I can.

How do I track my order?

If your shipping method includes tracking, you’ll receive a tracking link via email when your order is posted out. If you have any questions about your tracking or shipment, please just send me a message on here.

At this time, I don't offer exchanges. If you’re unsure which size would suit best, please check out the sizing charts - I have all sizes mentioned on each product listing. Please send me a message if you are unsure before ordering, and I will be happy to help you work out your best option!
