About Designed With Meaning

Creating Art That Sparks a Smile and Celebrates Life

Our Story

Designed With Meaning began as a shared dream in the basement of our home in 2015. Our first designs centered around maps - creations that allowed us to express our love for travel and exploration. Over time, our passion for design evolved and expanded, leading us to explore new concepts like personalized star maps and atlas art. Today, we take pride in creating designs that celebrate both the big events and the everyday moments in life.

What's the idea behind "Designed With Meaning"?

The name "Designed With Meaning" reflects our core philosophy: every design we create should tell a story. We believe that art has the power to spark joy, inspire wonder, and bring a smile to your face. Whether it's commemorating a special event or expressing a personal passion, our goal is to help you find joy in the little moments in your life.

Our Products

Our product range is as diverse as the stories we help tell. We offer personalized star map prints, world travel maps, custom word search art, woven blankets, embroidered shirts, and star map wedding guest book alternatives. And we're always exploring new ideas and mediums - stay tuned for upcoming additions like pillows, women's tights, name jewelry, metal signs, tapestries, and more!

Don’t even think about it-just get it. The owners were amazing and the print came out even better. Thank you!!!


Absolutely love this shop. Have ordered a couple times and it's always quality. Top notch!


Such a great idea for a "paper wedding anniversary"! The quality was great and will definitely order from them again!
