Live every day with the Funny Side Up

Funny Side Up | Sandra Bruin

My name is Sandra Bruin, designer en illustrator of Funny Side Up. I love drawing the most! Just with pencil and paper. With my illustrations and handlettering I design several different products like cards, posters, stationery and gifts for example.

After I finished my degree at the George Street School of Art in Dumfries, Scotland, I worked several years as a (freelance) graphic designer. Because I had so many ideas and wanted to do something with this I started my own company Funny Side Up. This brings me much joy, pleasure and energy!

My moto is “live your life with the Funny Side Up”! See the beauty in the daily life and be positive!

My collection of cards, stationery and gift articles are available at the online store of Hallmark.nl and in several stores in the BeNeLux, Germany, Austria and Zwitserland via Hallmark.

Beside the Funny Side Up collection I also illustrate and design for other companies.
For Unicef for example I have designed cards and gifts. These can be bought throughout Europe at Unicef webshops and at Ikea’s in The Netherlands. More work you can find at the portfolio page.

If you have inquiries, wish to collaborate, are interested in licensing or commissioning art, I’d be delighted to hear from you! Please contact me here.
