Here's a fun, cheery rainbow-coloured crossword style personalised print - one of several styles we offer:
Here's another personalised family print - it's black and white but you can choose from several other colours too, so you'll be able to match it to the decor in whichever room you plan to hang it:
Rainbows have been 'a bit of a thing' in 2020. Families have often been around each other more in 2020 too, due to lockdowns and enforced isolation.
We designed this striking, friendly, bright print - a simple, cheerful, welcoming piece of wall art. It's a happy family print for a children's playroom or bedroom, but looks equally at home in a hallway or another part of the house where you want to inject a bit of colour.
Imagine walking into someone's home and seeing such a friendly piece of wall art! It'd put a smile on your face!
You've probably never heard of this kind of wall art before, and that's because it's unique.
The geometric design is created from the birthday dates (day and month) of all the members in the family. Each family member's birthday is represented by a pair of rings on the artwork. The number of arrow heads on the rings shows the birth date. Below the artwork the colour-matched family names show which ring belongs to which person.
In short: a unique piece of artwork created from, and for, a family. Every family is unique, so why shouldn't every family have it's own unique piece of artwork? These pieces have a calm, sophisticated look, minimalistic and alluring.
Imagine explaining to visitors that the art hanging in your home was actually created from the birthdays of those who live there - it's a lovely little story to be able to tell.
A completely different design and feel compared to the previous print, but based on the same idea: it's unique family art created from a set of family birthdays.
This wall art has something of an ancient feel to it - all the spots are a little uneven and have a beautifully textured appearance, a bit like pebbles or an early form of writing. And when you count the spots, you get a date. The first row in the picture below shows 4, 9 then 61 spots - 4th September 1961 (or, if you're in the US, 9th April 1961). Names at the bottom of the print show which set of dots refers to each person.
It's a nice story to tell people who look at the print, and it's also a means of not forgetting birthdays!
Every family needs activities at Christmas - something everyone can get involved in.
