Redbubble Face Masks

Hi everyone

I never would have imagined a day that my designs would be used for face masks, but here we are. I understand the science, these are not surgical masks preserved for our health and care workers, and these masks won’t protect us from catching Covid19. BUT – there appears to be evidence that they may help stop transmitting the virus to others. To me it’s a no brainer, it makes sense that if everyone chose to wear a mask when outdoors, In turn we would all be better protected. 

I really don’t want to wear a face mask, but if we need to do it I will, and if I’m going to do it – I’ll be doing it with some style!

I have spent a little time over the weekend enabling some of my unique patterns & abstract designs from my RedBubble Amanda Lakey store, I’ve also started enabling a few monogram and name designs from my RedBubble Pretty Personal store.

I think the girls name designs work especially well, as shown below. The Pretty Ink design set can be found here.  There are 20 popular girls names, but the idea behind my Pretty Personal store is that you are able to request changes – or different names in this case. Just message me and it will be done.

Ultra Violet

Pantone has announced the colour of 2018, my favourite shade of purple – named PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet. This is a wild move from the fresh Greenery that dominated design during 2017. Going by last years success, we can expect to see lots of this gorgeous deep purple shade everywhere during 2018.
