bright and breezy

And... We're back!! Open again today after a great weekend and raring to go with our usual great selection of gifts for literally anybody. Pop in and have a look if you don't believe us, or shop everything online and don't forget we can gift wrap your online orders! 👌

 

 

We were inspired by all that marathon action last weekend. It's always good to be out and about even if you're not out of breath, and we've got lots of handy accessories to make it easier. Like our fab new recycled backpacks, our collapsible stojo keep cups, a light-up slap band and even an apocalypse kit in case the undead take over tomorrow night. Well, you can't be too sure can you? 🎃

 

 

That feeling when you sleep in...! With our voice-activated flip-clock, you’ll always know what time it is! Happy Halloween from all of us at Designist 🎃💀

 

 

Alice Fitzgerald is one of our favourite Dublin based visual artists. She is inspired by by natural shapes juxtaposed with geometric forms. Her work is simple and beautiful. Damn Fine Print will be holding an exhibition of her work until November 15th. 

 

 

If you’re around town, pop in and admire our new range of linen lampshades from Mr Kite Designs in Cork. Mr Kite is the brainchild of newcomers to the craft scene Jade Hogan and Jo Slevin. Everything they make is handcrafted and their love of beautiful materials is clear. This yellow, teal and oatmeal design brings a subtle pop of colour that would love great in so many rooms.

 

 

If you make your own beer or kombucha you’ll know that bottles can be murder to clean - all those bits that cling to the sides and just won’t come off!! This is the answer - you simply drop a couple of Scrubbies into whatever container you're washing with soap and water. Then just give things a good old shake and let the Scrubbies scrub away the mess. There’s a ceramic ball inside each Scrubbie sponge so it can touch clean all the hard to reach spots. They are completely reusable - just wash in warm water and soap then air dry.
