Welcome to Helena Tyce Designs. We’re a small team based at Sneinton Market in the Creative Quarter of Nottingham. We like to make lovely goodies to make your chops smile because when your chops smile, our chops smile.
As a youth I was awful and would make my Dad stop the car to allow me sketch – (here I am at Sma Glen in Scotland). I had to sketch and paint and listen to The Cure, every day, several times a day. Not much has changed although I am definitely less awful and would probably choose The National to listen to.
If you notice our products make you feel emotion then we’re thrilled about that. We do everything straight from the heart. The business started when my two were little with classic nursery rhyme prints and continues to grow with the family. Nowadays it’s more building resilience and positive messaging for them (and for the Mums!)
If you’ve got an occasion coming up and you need something quirky and unique you’re in the right place. We have lots of lovely personalised stuff too.
Everything starts life as a hand drawn, painted or printed piece and I everything you see on the website is designed by me. I enlist the help of the very talented husband for any words that appear in the designs such as our ever popular “Run” range. Everything is made with care and most of it in our studio in Sneinton, Nottingham whilst warbling loudly to BBC Radio 6 Music.
And finally it’s important to us that we do no harm in bringing our goodies to you. We source from inside the UK where ever we can and if not we aim to source ethically. Read our social responsibility statement here.
Our goodies are sent out all over the World so fear not if you don’t live in the UK – you can still join in the fun!
