A BRIKA maker story

Lesley Pocklington

"All of our paper goods and gifts are thoughtfully designed, printed and packaged in Ontario, Canada."

Created by Lesley Pocklington and inspired by her love for minimal design and type - Swell Made Co. offers paper goods and gifts that make a statement. She likes to keep things simple. Everything is modern, but thoughtful (and witty) with a touch of gold. A lifelong lover of paper goods, Lesley creates stationery that is perfectly simple; waiting for your personal touch. Handwritten notes and sending mail are always a good idea. Her collection of art prints are timeless and neutral; ready to stand alone or become of a part of your existing art collection. To top it off, Swell Made Co. carries tote bags, keytags, pendants and more to create a swell gift. Lesley worked as an Art Director and Designer across Canada, before starting Swell Made Co., but had always dreamed of creating stationery and art prints. Everything fell into place in 2014. It was definitely a BOOYAH moment. She continues to freelance with select clients while running Swell Made Co., and keeping up with her little family of four. You can often find her sipping coffee or wine, and exploring great cities and landscapes.
