Hello! I’m Laura and I’m the Glasgow-based designer and artist behind Blue Ranchu Designs.
A classically trained musician, I left my career in music and events to retrain in Graphic Design. Having always been a creative and artistic person, I decided to turn my passion for craft and design into a full-time business.
I design and create a range of beautiful and fun home accessories, stationery and hand screen printed clothing and textiles. My signature designs are bold, colourful and engaging.
I hand-draw all of the designs and then create the final images digitally. I make many of my products myself in my home studio. I pride myself on being able to produce beautiful products to a very high standard.
I am passionate about supporting other small businesses and work closely with a handful of Scottish and UK based manufacturers to produce some products in my homewares range.
I also screen print my own fabric range of items, including clothing, tote bags and cushions, by hand, using 100% solvent free and eco-friendly inks.
