About us

Sandra Salter and Jim Salter

Sandra and Jim Salter design and make limited edition screen prints from their studio shop in the picturesque town of Ashburton, Devon. Jim is a graphic designer with a playful approach to clean bold type and simple visual icons. Think contemporary classic. Sandra, previously an animator, loves fresh, energetic brush marks, illustrations and stories about food.

They became screen printers after years of working in creative media finding it has brought them back to hands-on work they love so much. Being able to play with ideas and bring designs to life in a very direct, physical way is refreshing after years of working to briefs that you never really see the end result. To make work that serves a purpose, from brightening up wall space, setting an upbeat contemporary mood, or for creating a focal point tying colour or themes together in a room.

Working from home in recent times has become a widespread consideration. Salty Studio designs are subtle and well pitched for positive working environment, zoom call backdrops, creating warmth and wit whilst not detracting from the jobs that actually have to be gotten on with. As long term homeworkers themselves they understand this need to keep the balance between professional and family living.
