Our puzzle designs prioritise details, which contribute to a challenging yet enjoyable puzzle experience. We encourage pops of colour and contrast, avoiding blocks of colour or empty space, to captivate our customers. Our goal is to produce puzzles of medium difficulty that strike a balance between challenging and engaging.
Our artists create a wide range of styles, from traditional to contemporary, abstract to representational, and everything in between. We strive to feature a diverse selection of artwork in our puzzles to cater to different tastes and preferences.
We connect with the artist and provide them with a brief that allows them to fully express their artistry. While we provide some guidance, the artists retain creative freedom to create a puzzle design that is true to their unique style. Once the artwork is completed, we work with the artist to finalise box colours and puzzle names. We celebrate the artist's creations and spread awareness of their work through blog posts and social media features.
We aim to showcase both emerging and established local artists in our puzzles, with varied backgrounds and inspirations. You can find more information about each artist we feature in their profile links above, including their bio, portfolio, and social media links.
While our focus is primarily on featuring New Zealand artists, we are open to collaborating with international artists whose artwork aligns with our brand, values and design aesthetic.
Absolutely! We welcome suggestions from our customers and are always interested in discovering new artists who would make great puzzle designs. Please feel free to contact us with your suggestions.
We don't currently offer direct connections with the artists, however feel free to connect with them on social media, you can follow their links on their product or blog pages through the links in their profiles.
We carefully curate our selection of artists and choose those whose artwork we believe would translate well into puzzle form and appeal to our customers. We also aim to feature a diverse range of artists and styles in each puzzle release to offer a varied selection for our customers.
We don't currently offer the artwork of the featured artist for sale separately, as our collaboration is based on the creation of just the puzzle design. However, we encourage customers to visit the artist's website or social media pages to view their other artwork and consider supporting them in that way.
We warmly welcome new artists and the opportunity to share with you our passion for puzzles and explore how we can collaborate to bring your artistic vision to life.
