Introducing any new idea into the world as the basis of a business is often fraught with many risks, uncertainties and challenges, however, it is the unswerving belief in what one is trying to achieve which helps to propel the idea forward no matter what hurdles may be placed in the way. And yet, until something is actually produced and marketed do you really ever know if your idea will be able to stand on its own, as it is the market that is the true final judge of your idea - scary stuff indeed!
A refined collection of sketchbooks, notebooks, and art prints designed to inspire your own creative journey.
Tiga was born out of the simple premise that as artists we wanted to go beyond the traditional in showcasing our art by infusing it into the same sketchbooks and notebooks we use in our everyday work. In taking this personal approach we truly believed that our work could lay the foundation for new levels of inspiration for those who would use our artist inspired products in their own creative pursuits and other endeavours.
Although showcasing our art was critical to our plans, we also wanted to produce the highest quality products that we could which meant that using premium paper and other materials would be integral into achieving our goals. With this in mind, we set out on a mission to create a range of high quality stationery products with a little bit of our own art and soul in each one.
As much as the belief in our idea was strong, we however sought validation for the concept through U.S. based crowdfunding site Kickstarter, and launched our 33 day campaign on June 16, 2015 with a goal of raising $25,000 AUD. To our great excitement (and dare say relief), at the campaigns conclusion we had received backing from 733 individuals from 53 countries around the world who had pledged almost $40,000 AUD. Truly a wonderful achievement for our hard efforts and thus setting the stage for more to come!
Since our Kickstarter campaign ended the natural progression for us was to turn this small success into something more, as we look to establish a viable and sustainable company based on our first line of Kickstarter products. As such, Tiga Artistry came to life as the embodiment of who we are and what we wish to be with the simple but pointed tag line of 'Inspiration noted'.
Our collective passion for art along with our artistic pursuits - combined with an uncompromising eye on quality - has set the stage for tiga to establish itself as a producer and purveyor of high quality stationery products designed to enrapture those who seek new ways to capture their creative flourishes or perhaps just everyday musings on whatever piques their interest.
However, as much as the focus lies on the products themselves, we are equally if not more focused on delivering unparalleled service to our customers, and will go to great lengths in order to make sure your experience and satisfaction with tiga is truly a pleasurable one.
We invite you along on the tiga journey because inspiration can hit at anytime - so be ready!
