Nineteen Eighteen Design Company creates locally inspired goods that celebrate your favorite landmarks around your city. Nineteen Eighteen was previously known as Artwork by Kaitlin but renamed to communicate our vision better. Kaitlin West is the artist that creates the designs. She grew up doing art with her grandmother, who was a local Birmingham Artist, Louise West. Kaitlin’s joy for art was initially sparked by sitting around the dining room table, creating with her grandmother. Louise was born in 1918, which was the inspiration for our new name. Kaitlin is an alumnus of Samford University, where she obtained her bachelor’s of fine arts.
Nineteen Eighteen Design Company is based in Birmingham, Alabama, but we also have designs for Auburn, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, and Bluff Park. We print our designs on t-shirts, prints, pint glasses, tea towels, and greeting cards. Kaitlin is constantly creating new designs and partnering with local businesses to celebrate the pride we carry in our cities. You can also find our items at Alabama Goods in Birmingham and Huntsville, Vulcan Park and Museum, and Mills Pharmacy in Bluff Park.
