Sandra and Jim Salter (Salty Studio) design and make limited edition screen prints from their studio shop in the picturesque town of Ashburton, Devon. They also live there with their family too. Jim is a graphic designer with a playful approach to clean bold type and simple visual icons. Think contemporary classic. Sandra, previously an animator, loves fresh, energetic brush marks, illustrations and stories about food.
They became screen printers after years of working in creative media. Finding it has brought them back to the hands-on work they love so much. Being able to play with ideas and bring designs to life in a very direct, physical way. And to make art that serves a purpose. From brightening up wall space to setting an upbeat contemporary mood, or for creating a focal point tying colour or themes together in a room.
Never before have we had to think so much about working from home. Salty Studio designs are subtle and well pitched for positive working environment, zoom call backdrops, creating warmth and wit whilst not detracting from the jobs that actually have to be gotten on with. As long term homeworkers we understand this world well that’s becoming much more the norm.
