Oor ain culture

Culture is one of the main things that define a country. It makes one place on a map more than simply in a different location to another place on a map. Scotland is no exception to this. From our tartans and traditions, to our writing, music, languages and so much more, the culture that has come to define Scotland has become known around the world.

Cringe no more

In the centuries since the birth of the union in 1707, Scots have been gradually all been taught to dislike, dismiss, or even flat out deny our culture. Known as the Scottish Cringe, this in-built censor manifests in all sorts of ways, often near words like 'twee' and 'parochial'. Bringing a focus and sense of worth to Scottish culture is one of the main aims of Indy Prints.

The artwork

Laura's wonderful words have been given a 20th century makeover. The combination of geometric shapes and elegant curves harks back to abstract works of the thirties, while the colour palette has more of a mid-century feel.
