I have seen so many various companies and independent designers over the past few months of moseying, who produce some fabulous art all based on one name.
Names Illustrated is no different. Gemma, the owner of the business, is one very talented designer and an all round fabulous person. She produces some fantastic designs, based around your name, and produces everything from mugs to canvasses and door plaques.
The premise is that for each letter in the name, various items beginning with that letter make up the design. So for example, the H in my name would be made up of things like a Helicopter, a Hand and a Horse. Great idea, right?
The product is just as impressive. I was lucky enough to have a door plaque/desk plaque with my daughter’s name designed and also a mug with my name designed on it. They both look ace!
I don’t think a cuppa has ever tasted better ;)
Gemma’s business is doing really well and I imagine that with the recent Fathers Day, she may have had a slight influx of orders. But what about other days? Other relatives? Even a “Best Teacher” one for your child’s fave teacher at school? The possibilties are endless.
It’s not only this that she excels in. Names Illustrated can also provide bespoke designs in a “This Is Your Life” style, suitable for any big occasion such as a wedding or a birthday. In fact, she once did an original painting for James Hewitt..
Now for the awesome part. I have a lovely little giveaway for you guys.

So, for example, you could have one mug for yourself and one for your other half, parent or child, or even a present to your mate that deserves a little gift.
