Founded in Dublin, Ireland in the summer of 2010, Keep Sketch is a small, collaborative design and illustration project, inspired by traditionally-styled stationery, doodling and burning paper planes.

With its roots in the school playground, “Keep sketch!” is essentially a peculiarly Irish way of telling someone to keep a look out; usually when you’re doing something you shouldn’t be doing.

In 2011, we ran a successful project on Fund it, Ireland's premier crowdfunding website for creative projects, and with the help of 108 wonderful people, we were able to collaborate with some of our favourite Irish designers and illustrators, and fund the production and distribution our first line of stationery.

We hope to launch a full website in the near future, but in the meantime, keep in touch, and keep up to date with the project through our Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

Also, be sure to check out the work of our hugely talented contributors and visit our wonderful stockists if you like any of the stuff you've seen here.
