Our Story

Bare It Designs is a locally owned company based out of Edmonton, AB and as the name suggests, designs creative illustrations.  Jo is the creative designer who originally began designing fun and cute illustrations for baby gear.  With the popularity of her illustrations, she has taken the leap into apparel for the entire family, home decor, enamel pins, magnets, and stickers - the skies the limit!

Jo has been in business for the past 12 years, with the early years creating screen printed designs.  Fast forward to the last 5 years to where she has expanded her offerings with the help of her printer Roli (see Roli showing off his skills on our banner).  You may have seen her at local Edmonton markets and collectives including: Etsy Made In Canada, Hand2Hand Handmade Market, The Seven Eighty, and EAC Shop & Services (formerly known as Tix on the Square).

A Message From Jo:

Hello, it's nice to meet you!

I was born and raised in Edmonton, and proud of it! I'm a wife, mother, and the owner, and creative designer of Bare It Designs.  I love to draw cute kawaii style, unique, and funny illustrations!  I also like to crochet and you can accessorize your wardrobe with cute character toques and accessories.

As a self taught designer, my inspirations come from my family, interests, environment, and everyday encounters. There is a story behind every design I've drawn, feel free to ask me when we meet!  Above all, I love to create fun, pun-tastic, G-rated designs that are shareable and brings smiles and laughter to everyone!

Along with creating my own designs, I also help individuals bring their custom concepts to life by helping with graphic design and printing services on a wide range of mediums.  And with my in-home design studio I have the freedom to customize, create, and print 24/7!

I'm constantly working on new designs and can't wait for you to see them!

With 💗,
