Hello and welcome! 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 apparel. My signature designs are bold, colourful and engaging. I'm inspired by my love of nature and animals. And I love dogs! Especially Dachshunds!
My designs start out as sketches and drawings which I then finish digitally. I make many of my products in my studio. I pride myself on being able to produce beautiful products to a very high standard. This also means I can create one-off designs and commissions for that extra special gift.
I hand screen print my own fabric range of items, including tshirts for all ages, baby clothes, tote bags and cushions, using 100% solvent free and eco-friendly inks.
I am also passionate about supporting other small businesses and work closely with a handful of Scottish and UK based manufacturers.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy shopping with Blue Ranchu!
