Pirrip are an illustration, design and printing studio. We love their designs, their style is both bold and thoughtful (which, co-incidentally, is how we’d like Different Kind to appear).
The studio was founded in 2012 by Alex Higlett and Georgina Hounsome. They wanted to run a studio where every item had a tale behind it. “We like to tell stories, and know that things have more authenticity if there’s research, thought and a narrative of some kind,” they say.
They strive to make all of their products as ethical as possible. They always use recycled paper and card and choose water-based inks. When they print of t-shirts they source them from trusted, ethicial suppliers.
Why they are different:
You won’t see another card like your card. All Pirrip’s designs are produced in small batches or exclusively for particular outlets. Our lioness card is a Different Kind one-off.
Why they are kind:
Their commitment to lowering their environmental impact goes far beyond their choice of materials. Each Christmas Pirrip make a range of Christmas cards. The cards are sold to aid their local food bank and made from the left over inks and papers in the Pirrip studio.
