2005 As design students we bonded over our mutual adoration for printmaking, pop culture and canines.
2010 A year in Oz inspired us to bring our DIY screenprint studio dreams to life.
2011 In a spare room in the north side of Cork City, Pretty Handsome Studio was born.
2013 We moved to Camden Palace Arts Centre for 3 ink and creative filled years.
2015 Camden Palace closed its doors, we said goodbye to our print studio and chose to set sail to New Zealand.
In January 2016 we decided to take Pretty Handsome on the road full-time and provide freelance design services while living the nomadic life.
As well as providing design services we enjoy nothing more than collaborating on self initiated projects, exploring new creative styles & techniques and experimenting with tools and technology.
The are no limits to what Pretty Handsome can (attempt) to do!
We are currently on route to the Canadian Rockies for 2 years of creative adventure and exploration.
We design graphics for implementation on canvases of all shapes and sizes, everything from Beer labels and Business Cards to Album Covers and Office walls.
