Your song. Her favourite place. His favourite quote. Your family tree.
Any tale can be told, share your story with us and we will bring it to life!
Whether it's a beautiful addition to your own home, or a gift for a special someone, we work with you to create your very own bespoke piece of art! As a small business, Talesmith has the flexibility to offer a personal service. When you contact us, you will speak with one of our co-founders and they will talk to you about your idea, taking notes and giving advice. Your brief then goes into the workshop and the creative process begins! Once the design is complete, you'll be sent a proof of your very own bespoke piece of art before it's printed and delivered to your door.
Here's a collection of the bespoke pieces we've created so far...
Looking at the stars
"I love your style. Let your creativity run free!"
Our favourite kind of commission, an open brief! Perfect for those of you looking for something for your home, but your'e not quite sure what that is. We start by asking you some questions to get to know you and your home. Then, we create several designs that are totally unique to you for you to choose from. Kats 'Looking at the stars' design was inspired by her favourite quote, interior style and happy personality.
So much more than just a lodge
"I'd like to give my father a picture of his beautiful house in the Highlands."
We were asked to create a framed image of a beautiful Scottish property to be given to it's owner as a gift.
Once we set to work on this bespoke piece, we discovered that Runie Lodge had a tale to tell! The property had so much history and was surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty.
So, to make this piece extra special, we wrote a bespoke poem telling the tale of Runie lodge and overlaid it onto a beautiful image of the property itself.
Our customer was delighted and Runie Lodge were overjoyed! Their bespoke piece now takes pride of place in the Lodge's sitting room.
It's Friday I'm in love
"I'd like to display the lyrics to my favourite song."
Our customer wanted a bespoke lyrics print so that she could sing her favourite song, 'Friday I'm in love' by The Cure, everyday! After a few questions about colours, fonts and her interior style, we created several options for her to choose from including different design styles, frame options and sizes. The chosen design was a beautifully simple typographic print in our solid oak frame which now sits proudly in her hallway.
Cuddles in the kitchen
"I'd love to surprise him this Christmas with our favourite line from our song."
Many of us have a song, and often a particular line, that has a special meaning to us as a couple. The brief from our customer for this piece was to capture a line from 'their song' as a Christmas gift for her boyfriend.
We worked with her to decide what font style and colours she would like and created a simple, bold typographic print allowing the words and sentiment ring through.
As an extra special touch, we also added their very own Talesmith mark which displays the couples initials and their anniversary - not only a beautiful print, but a useful reminder too!
Not your average family tree
"I'd like a family tree of some kind showing my four children."
Our customer wanted a frame (or frames) to represent their four children to be displayed on their staircase wall. They originally came to us wanting a family tree but through our creative exploration we came up with the idea of an ascending branch. We created a series of four frames, each frame representing one of their four children. The branch signified that the children are a single branch of a wider family tree and the ascending order correlated to the ages of the children, from youngest to eldest as you go up the stairs. We carefully matched the colour tones to the interior of our customer's home and the frames are now proudly displayed for all to see!
All of our bespoke pieces are priced individually and turn-around time is 10 working days from order to delivery.
