Derry Nice Things was started almost by chance back in 2015. Having always loved vintage travel posters and being a proud Derry man, Ryan Clifford set out one day to search high and low for one from his home town to hang on the walls at home. He soon realised that these prints were extremely difficult to come by so Ryan set about creating his own.
The first few designs proved very popular with family and friends so he began working on a variety of scenes which were special to him. Soon Ryan had a range of local scenes of Derry and Donegal and was encouraged to showcase them at Christmas markets and craft fairs. The response was overwhelming and from there he began regularly attending more market events not only in Derry, but further afield.
The most rewarding part of the process is meeting the customers on market days and hearing the special significance that some of our scenes have with those who buy them as well as hearing how far Derry Nice Things prints travel to.
