We’re feeling effortlessly stylish with our brand new Black Marbled Weekly Planner from SkandiDesign, a London based design company dedicated to producing products that are on-trend, understated, affordable and beautiful quality. SkandiDesign products are all produced in the UK, which is so refreshing to hear in a world where mass production under poor labour conditions is a real issue. We got in contact with Gilly Tilson, the creator of SkandiDesign, to find out more about the company and her story…
My name is Gilly Tilson, I’m 26 years old and I’m a qualified Interior Designer living in London.
I created the brand SkandiDesign at the end of 2014 after quitting my interior design job in the city. It’s an e-shop that sells contemporary prints and stationery that are simple, minimalist and effortlessly beautiful. I design everything in my London studio flat and get everything produced in the UK.
“All of my products have been heavily inspired by fashion, architecture, and Scandinavian interiors.”
Our favourite product at the moment is definitely our new black marbled weekly planner. The planner is currently on sale on our website for £12.99 (www.skandidesign.com) and it is perfect to scribble down all your weekly meal plans/ exercise plans/ work plans/ to do lists etc. The best part about it is that it is undated, so it means that if you forget to use it for a couple of months or something, there is no need to waste any pages or end up buying a new one!
Not only do we share in Gilly’s simple and contemporary vision, but we also draw enormous inspiration from her passion for design and her courage to quit her city job to make her dreams a reality. For any creatives out there who are feeling like they cannot achieve their goals and start their own company, take a page out of Gilly’s book and just go for it!

Isn’t it nice when you order something online and it turns up looking so beautiful you don’t even want to open the packaging?! Well SkandiDesign has got this down… our planner arrived with a personalised note to us, while the planner was protected in a plastic sleeve which was sealed with a gorgeous SkandiDesign sticker and the whole package was tied up with a black ribbon! What a treat! Little touches like this are what take a brand up to that next level, good quality products with a lot of thought going into the presentation.
Go visit SkandiDesign to pick up your own planner, hurry they are still on sale!
