Welcome to Wink Design, where it's all about the fun!
Wink Design was founded in 2009 by me, Michelle Lancaster, a multi award winning Designer and Illustrator. I work from my studio on Hampshire's sunny south coast, by the sea (hooray!), and I'm ably assisted (hindered) by the Wink Design pupper, Toffee, otherwise known as the #fuzzyfacedidiot. He's a right little character and even has his own instagram account! @fuzzyfacedidiot - you can see a picture of him at the bottom of this page.
Where did it all start?
I've always had a love for drawing, and when I was younger I was at my happiest when surrounded by paper and coloured pencils, drawing cute characters. Later, I used to do things like draw silly cartoon strips to make my friends laugh - usually about something random that had happened - I'd put a funny spin on it and draw little characters to represent us all. I got a real thrill from seeing them laugh when they read it. I've always loved humour, and nothing makes me happier than making people laugh. My love of art eventually led me in to a Graphic Design degree at University, where I honed my skills. I left with a First Class Degree, the skills I needed to take my business forward, and a passion for design.
Now I'm running my own business, designing and making all sorts of wonderful items, from art prints to greetings cards, to enamel pins, stationery and small gifts, with a little touch of humour here, and a cute character there. I love bright colours and fun designs, and I bring a little bit of me into everything I do. One of the best things about what I do is being able to help my customers find the perfect card, print or thoughtful gift - one which will make both the gift giver, and the recipient smile!
My personalised cards and prints can be tweaked to suit your requirements - so they'll be totally unique! Many of my products are specially created to be given as gifts for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, at Christmas, and Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Hopefully I have something for everyone, but if you can't find what you need, then I always welcome requests for designs to fit your occasion. Get in contact!
If you're anything like me, when you order something you want it straight away! That's why I have a fast turnaround - typically dispatching orders within 1 business day - so you can get your hands on all the lovely stuff as soon as possible. Ooh, speedy.
