Hiya Pal began in 2013 when I made my husband a Valentine's card. Aye, I know, boak. It's not as romantic as it sounds though, the card had a tartan heart on it, but it also had the word 'bawheid'. 

All our pals loved it (my husband understandably less so), so I came up with some more designs, got myself a website and here I am 5 years later, still doing it. I've picked up some amazing independent stockists across Scotland along the way and also sell through online marketplaces Notonthehighstreet and Etsy. 

I have a degree from Glasgow School of Art in visual communication and enjoy working on some graphic design jobs for various clients I've built up over the last couple of years, as well as starting up a new venture to explore some more papercut typography projects. 

Other need to know facts: I prefer choccy digestives to teacakes, margaritas to whisky and fanta to irn bru...but I promise I am Scottish! You can find out more (probably too much) if you follow me on Instagram.
