WORDS Mary Garner
Collaboration is at the heart of online store Pleekō, a small print studio based in Somerset West that teams up with local artists who create a range of designs to be printed and made available to purchase online.
“We don’t do anonymous art,” says the team at Pleekō, which was co-founded by self-taught graphic designer Petro Vivier. The brand wants buyers to get to know the artists they are supporting.
You can buy canvas bags, art prints, pencil cases, tablecloths, pouches, T-shirts, wallpaper and stickers, featuring designs by artists such as Catherine Fok-Seang, WKNTZ Design, ideacircus, Julie-Ann Smith, Inge van der Post, Elana Esterhuyse, Kate Currie, Nabeela Parkar, Vos & Ink, Rozahn van Schalkwyk, Call It Magic Designs, Patricia van der Merwe, Silvan and Teresa Truda, as well as Pleekō’s own designs.
