The tale of Small english sharks started back in 2016 when I created the very first release called LLAMAS ALSO SHARKS. The creation of that work was very much a quest to find courage and to be brave. The qualities which could easily be associated with sharks and their fierceness.
With every next release, I continued to create with an intention to inspire people to be brave and to go out there to follow their dreams and aspirations, quietly whispering the same words of encouragement to myself in order to face the challenges of building my studio. 
In early 2018, it was clear to me that I am creating for sharks - the brave, the focused and the kind people. The below images
are a few of many examples of the wonderful Small english customers and collaborators sharing their sharky vibes.

The founders of Made Blue came up with an innovative organizational structure in order to deliver on their promise to bring clean water to the parts of the world where it is scarce.

I collaborated with Made Blue founders to create a visual explanation of this unique system they have implemented in their organization.
