Do you know about Art Rookie? If not, then let us introduce you to a wonderful source of brilliantly creative products that is about to transform your Christmas shopping angst into Christmas shopping ease. Art Rookie is a brilliant online shop that is dedicated to supporting British artists and designers.
Created by Liz Bush and Jodie Prince, young artist and designers themselves, Art Rookie’s USP is that the designer or artist is given the opportunity to apply their artwork to a selection of products, showcased on the Art Rookie website. This is where the artist can then get back to being an artist, and all the rest (from production to shipping) is all handled by Art Rookie. It’s a brilliantly supportive way for designers to get their work out there in a consistently high quality way, all made to order in Britain, with the benefits of being part of a bigger concern whilst retaining their independence.
The Art Rookie team are in a unique position of being to oversee a multitude of artists and see trends in the work that’s being created. We asked them to share the biggest stories with us so you can be as inspired as possible with buying gifts for the design driven people in your life. There are three big trends: surrealist, monochrome and bringing the outside in.
All of these products can be found on the Art Rookie site and while you’re looking for your favourites from these moodboards, I feel sure you’ll discover many more irresistible designs.
