Hello, I’m Nia a designer, illustrator and the crazy cat lady behind Niaski design; a design studio based out of my home studio in Exeter.
I have combined my passion for design with a love of the four legged fur beast we all know as cats.
Niaski is a collection of observational prints inspired by my very own cats, Sampson, Frankenstein, Salvador and Socket. Salvador the cat has inspired my Artist Cat series, Pablo Picatso, Salvador Catli, Vincat van Gogh, Henri Catisse and Frida Catlo.
My designs are available as vibrant, fun and colourful greeting cards, A3 and A4 prints, hand-made pins and hand screen printed tote bags.
Each design is hand drawn and gets its start either on paper or directly on the computer using a pen tablet. Each card and print is produced on thick card stock and packaged by hand, everything happens here in my home studio.
The environment plays a huge factor in the production of my paper goods. I have selected a beautiful, 300gsm FSC paper — making each card and print feel luxurious and highly durable at the same time. I also try to use 100% eco-friendly packaging and re-use packaging where possible. I work closely with a local friendly print house and all my products are produced in the UK.
