Katie Ireland Designs is an environmentally conscious illustration and print business, selling prints and illustrations of landmarks and buildings.
Started in 2018 by Katie Ireland whilst studying a Ba Hons degree in Textile Art Design and Fashion at Ulster University Belfast. It combines a love of architecture, photography and illustration into a range of minimalist, contemporary illustrations and prints.
It is a range of fine-art Giclee prints, digitally and screen-printed textiles and other printed products. Featuring mainly but not exclusively Northern Irish, Irish and UK Landmarks.
Sustainability is very important at Katie Ireland Designs. The prints and packaging are either fully recycled, recyclable or made from eco-friendly materials and we're working on making all of the products as sustainable as possible. Everything is printed and made by N.Ireland, Ireland or UK based companies and makers.

Meet the Designer
"I am an illustrator, printer, designer and entrepreneur.
In 2018 I launched my business ‘Katie Ireland Designs’ selling contemporary, hand-drawn prints and illustrations of architecture and landmarks.
As part of my degree in Fashion and Textiles, I specialise in garment design and print with in interest in both fashion and costume design. My textile designs are predominantly digital print and laser-cutting and my garment designs are heavily influenced by my architecture photography, travel, archive research and a desire to support local and be sustainable.
I have had a range of experience from teaching children’s workshops; working freelance as a costume trainee for film & TV and theatre; curatorial experience volunteering in the NMNI costume archives and event management experience as committee chair of the UUSU Fashion and Textiles Society. I am also a member of the Student Institute of Directors.In 2019 I decided to co-found MALA, a business designing and making local, sustainable and functional pocket-bags, because sustainability, local design & industry and creative business are some of the most important things for me. As The Managing Director I wanted to build a team of creatives working to make design-driven products that have a positive environmental and social impact."
