Manda Hartley is the talent behind Hofficraft, creating a range of high quality, handmade illustrated gifts. Having studied graphic design at university, Manda set up her business in 2014 and sells online via Etsy and Folksy. Her illustrations have a cartoon quality and the most fantastic comical expressions.

I came across her work through the Oxford Etsy network, when she was stocked in their pop-up shop in Didcot. Among her work featuring Metallica loving cats, gin, and angry Welsh ladies, her frame ‘Read Books Not Phones’ spoke volumes to me. I kept thinking about it for weeks after I had seen it, so I knew I had to get it.

Manda sells a variety of printed accessories including cards, coasters, wall prints, t-shirts and mugs. From the range of stock that I have handled, her print and material quality is very high, alongside her customer service.

You can view a huge range of her work on Instagram (hofficraft).
