AW Designs is a small. home-based studio, specialising in personalised gifts, stationery and small-batch promotional items.

Handmade in Gordon VIC.

Hi! I'm Aleks and I started AW Designs in 2021, in the midst of the Covid Pandemic.

Like so many other people stuck at home during successive lockdowns, I poured all the extra time I suddenly had available into my hobbies and all of a sudden my little craft corner got bigger and bigger.

Best of all, I design and make everything myself, in my home studio - no outsourcing. This means that everything can be customised - from tote bags, to glassware, to stickers and everything in between. If you've got an in-joke or a nickname you'd like incorporated into a gift, just let me know!

AW Designs is a home-based business with a small but dedicated team. 


Here are a few of my personal favourites. These are things I've given as gifts to loved ones, or those that take pride of place in my own home.
