Some hearts being created for cards like my toucan one :-)

Every time I get a new card printed I take it to my mum for approval. Here is my newest on her mantelpiece :)

The Animals Of is a one woman design studio founded in 2014, by me Rachel Lee. I design beautiful, unique and quirky gifts and homewares.

The Animals Of was born from the work I completed studying for my Masters in Manchester. I had spent a long time developing my own style of illustration. I created a story book called ‘The Animals Of Eldritch’ which was about a sinister world called Eldritch filled with animals. When I had finished my Masters I wanted to get out there selling my own work. I am blessed to have a studio in South Norfolk. I started going into my studio and designing with those illustrations from my Masters. Turning the animal illustrations into commercial designs.

I fell in love with The Animals Of as a name. It was a quirky like my animal illustrations and it just stuck. I love being at a market and customers see me and say “You’re The Animals Of!”

I started my creative career designing for fabrics and wallpaper. I was using digital print as my method of production and I wanted to fully exploit it’s capabilities. Digital print means you can use 1000’s of colours in one design. So by working with colour, texture and photography I could create really unusual designs that were jam packed with detail and colour. I didn’t want my designs to end up being brash and in your face so I used this technique to recreate a sense of whimsy, using starry skies and the aurora borealis as my inspiration.

Of course starry skies aren’t appropriate for some of my more exotic animals so here I look at ripples in water, mountains or trees. To try evoke the same sense of magic.

I hope you find something in my Etsy shop that takes your fancy!

If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to get in touch. :-)
