OH NO Rachio!
OH NO Rachio! is run by Rachel, she creates lots of fab products with typographic and illustrative designs. She also blogs regularly about her business, fitness regime and her super cute cat Luna. ONR product photography is always fab too if you need some inspiration for your own business branding.
Nicola's creates super fun cards, textiles and general illustrated fabulousness. Her designs are always really unique and original and her instagram feed is definitely one to follow (she posts lots of really sweet photos of her new baby girl alongside products too!).
Holly Booth Photography
Holly is an amazing photographer who works with lots of small business owners to give them perfect product shots (among other things). She offers a remote photo service too, you can send her your products and she will photograph them for you without you having to leave the house! Amazing!
Ladybird Likes has been a favourite of mine since I met Zoe at a craft fair in London many moons ago! Zoe blogs a lot about growing her small business and is a great example of using instagram to grow and promote a small business effectively.
Nancy creates gorgeous printed fabrics crafted into homewares and accessories. Her blog 'Hello Nancy' features lots of great DIYs and details of the workshops she runs - tons of all round loveliness!
Predominantly a blogger over at Tigerlilly Quinn, Fritha also runs an online shop. Her site is a great example of making a business out of blogging and using social media for business.
Hope you found some new small businesses to inspire you. What other creatives do you recommend following?
