Based in Manchester, Sketchbook Design was started in 2015 by artist Michael Wylie. At Sketchbook Design we strive to produce engaging hand-drawn typography artwork that is often inspired by popular culture. While our style develops and changes we always use traditional drawing and painting techniques to create our artwork. We take pleasure in the idiosyncrasies of hand-made art, the little human touches that give artwork personality and uniqueness.
We endeavour to create art that starts a conversation, causes you to reminisce, engages you and hopefully puts a smile on your face. We make contemporary typography prints and artwork for fans of football, music, TV/film and local history. Our typography prints work in a range of settings such as the home, office, bars and restaurants.
As well as selling art prints we also produce commissioned bespoke art for individuals and businesses. We can produce personalised artwork to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or any landmark occasion. We work with businesses to produce custom hand-painted wall murals and bespoke typography artwork to transform any spaces.
