tinykiwiprints' Shop Announcement

Tinykiwi is a little design brand started by me, Yolanda a dutch/kiwi designer.
Under this name I create geometric animal designs, which I then sell as fine art prints.
Recently I have also started to add a line of children's ABC posters, educational resources and calendars.

The tinykiwi story:
Originally from New Zealand, I grew up in a beautiful rural area and spent many hours drawing the animals and plants around me.
In 2012 I completed a Bachelor of Design and shortly afterwards opened my first online shop. Since selling my first print I have added to my collection weekly.

My style has changed subtly but continues to be inspired by my love of nature, colour and simplicity.
Designs start as sketches which I then develop and finish digitally. I do not use a Photoshop filter !! Each animal grows one geometric shape at a time. On average a design takes me 3-8 hours.

Now almost 3 year later, tinykiwi is my full time job. And no I don't work out of a little studio in the woods with 3 cats sitting on my desk for company,.. instead I travel and work at the same time. It's just me and my tiny 11" Macbook Air and drawing tablet sitting at my hosts kitchen table or in local library where ever that happens to be that month..Currently I work from Aix en Provence, France.

Because I haven't yet managed to fit my large format printer in my backpack, so I leave that side of things (production and dispatch of prints) in the very capable (and willing !! :) hands of my family back in New Zealand.
With 5 of us collaborating from two sides of the globe, it's a bit of a bizarre situation and not always easy. (Imagine working over two time zones, organising through Skype and co ordinating by hundreds of emails flying back and forth etc..) But we enjoy it and continue to make it work for now !

So I receive and answer all your questions, process each individual order. Then I pass them on to be printed, very carefully packed and shipped by my family.
Do you have questions about our working habits ?! Please be reassured and check out our feedback on Etsy to see what our customers think : https://www.etsy.com/nz/your/shops/tinykiwiprints/reviews?ref=shop_info

Thank you from me and my family for your support, we hope you enjoy our combined efforts !

Feel welcome to message me with any questions, design or wholesale enquires.

Tinykiwi prints are stocked in stores in France, the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, South Africa, United States and New Zealand.
