Hiya Pal began in 2013 when Nikki made her husband a Valentine's card. Aye, she knows, boak. It's not as romantic as it sounds though, the card had a tartan heart on it, but it also had the word 'bawheid'.
All their pals loved it (her husband understandably less so), so Nikki came up with some more designs, got herself a website and here she is 5 years later, still doing it.
Nikki has a degree from Glasgow School of Art in visual communication and enjoys working on some graphic design jobs for various clients she's built up over the last couple of years, as well as starting up a new venture to explore some more papercut typography projects.
