Hello! My name is Milly and I’m an artist and designer living and working in a cute little neighborhood called Sunnyside in Queens, New York. My shop is Hunter and Co. Designs, specializing in custom rubber stamps with a modern aesthetic.

I’ve always been a visual person and have been drawn to create ever since I can remember. In college I went to film school, and after working as a camera assistant for over a decade (a very technical position), I really missed making things and being creative. I took art workshops and classes over the years, but something was still missing. Then a few years ago, I went back to school and earned a graphic design certificate from Parsons. I learned so much while I was there and was really inspired to pursue creative work again.

My inspiration comes from many places: colors, light, simple forms, and the natural world. Much of my work is characterized by minimalism and abstraction and influenced by mid-century design. Vintage postage stamps and science textbooks are also favorite sources of inspiration.

Designing rubber stamps really came about as an evolution of printmaking. I opened my first Etsy shop for stationery and paper goods and experimented with screenprinting and block printing. I soon became interested in designing and carving my own rubber blocks, and after further research I discovered laser engraving.  I loved the clarity and detail that was possible with the laser-engraved stamps, and the first rubber stamps I designed were created for my personal use. I decided to list some of them in Hunter and Co. on a whim, and I happily discovered there were customers out there who liked my designs! The stamps took off from there; I’ve added more typographic designs and a wedding collection as well.

I love that my stamps are a tool people use for their own self-expression. They make printmaking accessible for everyone, and there are limitless possibilities to what you can create with them (especially geometric shapes and forms). My future goals for the shop include creating a new collection and expanding into wholesale. One of my personal goals is to make time to learn and grow as an artist and challenge myself to work with new mediums – and to work with my hands more. I would love to find some collaborators to work on new projects!
