Christmas gifts guide: picks for MEN

Our statistics are clear - the biggest gift buyers are women. Most of the times they buy for their men: partners, brothers, fathers. I personally love to take time and carefully select a gift for a special someone. Sometimes I even draw a 'map' of what that person likes, what he's into. It definitely helps when buying for HIM. Some men have everything, some doesn't know what they want or need or don't really care about gifts.  There is no doubt - they all wear T-shirts. Here is a special ARTsy clothing collection of my personal favourites (included some hoodies too!) that are great gifts and will make your men happy. 1. Custom dog t-shirt.

I wanted to share our biggest obstacles that comes with this business and show THAT bit of our daily life. Issue No 1. Deciding on new styles/colours/prints It might be easy for a big company with a huge budget to do a research, but it is a bit different when you're small. I think I've already mentioned in my previous blogs that...

How do you come up with new designs?

It's the question we often get. I remember there were times when I was laughing when someone suggested I should introduce new design every week. It seemed mission impossible. In time, however, I have trained myself to create regularly. I do not need to wait for inspiration or that special moment when I feel urge to create. I have learned to push myself a little bit. 1. POP UPS Sometimes the idea pops up in my head and I try to draw it straight away. I do not look for similar images online and do not check IF there is something like that already. I believe that it can block the original idea. Unfortunately not every time I get it...
