The Design Atelier

A home is a place rich in heritage and abundant in memories, absorbing experience from old friends and passing it on to new. The history of a place is preserved in its walls. We created The Design Atelier as a way to help our customers create a home that tells their story.

The Design Atelier (previously Inky Editions) was founded by Melbourne based designer and visual artist Michelle McKinnon. She is largely self-taught as an artist but has formal training in graphic design and has worked as a designer for over 15 years. Michelle’s style is a playful, yet often precise, convergence of colour and shape. Her colour palette is often contemporary and sophisticated. Michelle is best known for her contemporary abstract paintings that feature bright pops of colour, combined with precise shapes and graphic line work.

Our Products

At The Design Atelier we produce our prints with quality products and with longevity in mind.

Our prints are archival quality and are designed and made in Australia. We use heavy weight 100% cotton rag paper which is free of acid, chlorine and brighteners so there is no yellowing over time. When it comes to framing, we use custom Australian made frames using Australian timbers. We also mount your print using a minimal mat board for a contemporary look while protecting your print. Our framed prints are very popular simply because everything is done for you – just unwrap and hang.
