At the moment I seem to have a slight obsession with art prints, particularly of the typographic kind. Art is a very personal thing and I myself find it particularly difficult to choose artwork for my own home. I’m not sure why this is but unless I have a really strong feeling towards a piece of art I wouldn’t want it hanging in my home. But I can’t quite put my finger on what it is exactly that makes me feel strongly about it. One thing I do know is that I feel strongly about words, no surprise there coming from a writer. So typographic prints are right up my street. And the fabulous prints by East London-based Hey! Holla are my current favourites and sitting right at the top of my lust list!
Run by the lovely Alex and Laura, Hey! Holla stocks a wonderful array of ‘Gift of the Gab’ giftware including fine art giclée typographic prints, 100% Cotton Eco-Tote bags and cotton screen printed tea towels. These fun and quirky products appealed to me as soon as I saw them and I’m pretty sure that anyone who was to receive a Hey! Holla gift would be over the moon. And that is exactly the reason why I have hand-picked a selection of my favourite Hey! Holla products to feature in The Design Sheppard Shop. So why not pop over to the shop and take a look.
