shop spotlight | designed by artists

In my search for all-things baby, I came across the most beautiful shop that both offers gender-neutral and gender-specific pieces for the little babes in your life, Designed by Artists / Designed by Artists features a collection of handmade products crafted in Houston, Texas, with such love and care. By combining practical designs with high quality materials, the products produced are those you would not only be pleased to own yourself, but proud to give as a gift to an expectant Mama or new little bundle!

The combination of black and white has always been, and will always be, timeless. Classic. Simple in the best way. I love how Insun, the talented owner and creator of Designed by Artists, takes such a basic color combination of B&W and creates beautiful children's pieces from them by adding her own artistic and modern touch.

"My name is Insun Hong and I am the creator and designer behind Designed by Artists, based in Houston, Texas. I am obsessed with design. "To get away from design, I do other design," this is my manifesto. I come home from a long day of working as a full time industrial designer, I go straight my sewing machine and that's how I relax. I love my work but designers are restricted to create what sells in the market and sometimes that's not what my heart wants to do. I unleash my creativity with threads and fabrics. I have been making things since I was little and started sewing 3 years ago. I was really fascinated by having the ability to create limitless products with just threads and fabrics. And I also found sewing is very therapeutic too."
"As my friends are all getting married and have babies I naturally started making baby products for gifts and received orders from friends and their cousins and their friends.... so I decided to open a small online store "Designed by Artists." My Fiance created this name for me after sharing my philosophy -- which is, "As a full time designer, one of the biggest tasks I have is to make marketable products that sell and this rule often conflicts with what I desire to do as an artist at heart." This name keeps my soul pure and honest like an artists when I design the graphic but it is still marketable and practical."

"My design is whimsical, fun and modern, all made by hand and filled with enough color and love to bring you a big smile!"
