Artist of the Month: August

Helena Tyce Designs

Helena Tyce Designs is a UK based design studio specialising in design-led, illustrated stationary and gifts.

Helena has over 20 years of design experience and a unique take on nostalgic, everyday subjects updated with a twist. She’s a pen and paper kinda gal so everything starts life as real art. Pen and ink, printing, mark making & hand printed type all go to make up the well known signature style. She then turns these unique designs onto a range of art, stationary and clothing. Where possible she also uses local suppliers to feed back into the local economy and reduce carbon footprint.

Music is our life force so designs are influenced by anything from Johnny Cash through to John Grant. The designs have a lyrical edge too with words playing a big part.

Helena and her small team firmly believe that life is about having fun so their biggest aim is to make you smile by triggering nostalgic memories and sneaking hidden meanings into the designs.
