What we do at Busy Monkey Studios

We are a vibrant art and design business offering a range of creative services including illustration, websites and graphic design.
Also we like to design, make and sell handmade greetings cards, ilustrated gifts and children's books online.

Our creative team

Our studio work is lead by Laura A Coats and Dylan Jackson. We don't use the term agency to describe our company as we work far more like a collective or collaboration.

Busy Monkey Studios believes in giving graduate or emerging designers the opportunity to work with us on an ad-hoc basis. To ensure the best possible design standards are delivered, we invest time and effort in all our affiliates .

Where we came from

...and where are we heading...


Busy Monkey Studios ltd was founded in January 2017 as a small independent greetings card design company. At that time Laura was working on Busy Monkey Studios alongside working as a freelance designer and illustrator. In late 2017 a merge was decided so Busy Monkey Studios could begin to grow. Dylan Jackson came on board in February 2018 as Senior Creative to help with the expanding business. Between them the vision for the company is growing steadily by the day.
Currently Busy Monkey Studios HQ is based in Bath. Many of our team, however, work with us remotely from all over the globe.
