With a hint of sassy, plenty of puns and a sprinkle or sarcasm all items made by Kate Rucker Designs will bring a smile to your face. Whether you’re after a greeting card for any occasion, or a t-shirt that says exactly how you feel we’ve got you covered! After recently becoming a Fashion Design and Marketing graduate, whilst on the constant hunt for jobs I found myself starting to draw little doodles. I continued to keep drawing as the boredom of being unemployed increased. Always sharing my images with friends and family via social media, when they started to gain more and more attention. Requests came flying in for prints, postcards, and greetings cards. Enter Etsy... Now I have my designs printed on all sorts of different things. I also design on off custom prints upon request. More recently I have designed and made a line of t-shirts which have been worn by the likes of Dani Dyer, Megan Barton-Hanson and Vicky Pattison.
