About the employer

From the very beginning the aim for the brand was to be recognised as a platform for illustrators to find an audience for their work and showcase their designs.

We started by working with 10 illustrators who we’d met online and learned quite early on that combining the talent of lots of artists meant we had strength in numbers. Those who found us because they liked one illustrator might find others that they liked too - and so we grew! Ohh Deer has now worked with over 100 creative folk to create contemporary illustrated products. Our bespoke collections form a large part of the design work we complete.
