Our Story

Simply, Katy is a small business founded by Katy in 2020. Our world is full of bold colours, illustrated travel destinations and playful characters - and our goal is to create great quality products that bring joy to the everyday. All of our products are lovingly designed and hand packed in our home studio in the North of England. 

The Artist

Hello, I founded my small business whilst working for a card company in Bath, UK. My work is colourful, unique and full of lot’s of small details. Primarily I work digitally and am inspired by my love of travel, coffee and books. When I’m not working on new art and products for Simply, Katy you will find me surrounded by my plants, enjoying a coffee and a great book. My biggest hobby is traveling, I love the feeling of visiting somewhere new and experiencing new cultures, foods and meeting new people. 
"I started this brand by creating art that I truly loved and would be proud to hang up on my own walls. What makes me the happiest is hearing how much joy my art prints and accessories bring to peoples lives, such as a travel print which sparks a memory for someone or a pin that brings a sense of joy to someones jacket."
Founder & Creative Director 

Our Look

Katy’s digital illustrations and vibrant colour palette are the heart of Simply, Katy. Katy started designing her own travel prints after visiting some of her favourite cities such as New York, Venice and Barcelona. With that the brand grew as Katy started to develop her love for creating homeware and accessories unlike any other in the market. 

A modern colour palette

Katy has crafted a colour palette over the years which includes a mixture of calming pastels and vibrant pops of colour. 

A mixture of architecture

Katy loves to mix lot's of different landmarks together to create a sense of fun within her work.

It's always about the small details

In all of Katy's work you will notice that she loves to add lot's of small details to her work. This really helps to bring them alive.
