If you're here, you're either into K-drama (and are going gaga over the sizzling chemistry of Yoon Se-ri and Captain Ri in CLOY) or are still super nostalgic about old-school postcards. Or like me, are into both. In any case, you're at the right place, because I've recently discovered an amazing e-store which is killing it with its stunning graphics and illustrations. Called Ankee Monkeee (what a cute name), this online space was a lockdown baby kickstarted in 2020 by Ankita Arora - a passionate designer and an architect by profession. With a keen eye for digital designs, she aims to bring together design, the art of correspondence and sustainability together.
Her collection is divided into two: made-to-order illustrations (which includes customised prints for corporates, packaging, wedding cards and invites etc.) and her standard (yet classic) postcards and frames. Psst, if you're planning to gift your bae something thoughtful and bring back some sweet memories, her couple illustrations are simply adorable. I've already placed my order for the CLOY-themed postcard, which is also their best-selling. Apart from these, you can expect designs and themes revolving around Indian streets, childhood memories, travel and camping, and lots more. Of course, you can pick a theme or send across your idea, and she'll turn it into a magical piece of art.
Oh, and she also plans on expanding her collection to include other merchandise like diaries, bags and other knick-knacks. The best part? It's super pocket-friendly. Her postcards start at INR 50 and prints & frames start at INR 150. If you have a new design, her fees start from INR 900 and upwards.
