Nuxi was started by the children’s book illustrator, Jan McCafferty, to create beautifully illustrated products for children.
Jan worked as a Graphic Designer at Usborne Publishing in London, before leaving to work as a freelance children’s book illustrator and designer, for many publishers including Egmont, Penguin, Macmillan, Watts, OUP, Orchard, Scholastic and Usborne.
After the birth of her two girls, she started writing a children’s book for them, about a little woodland Autumn fairy called Nuxi, and her three fairy friends.
These stories inspired her to turn the characters into designs for greetings cards and art prints, and so Nuxi, the company, was born!
All paper used is FSC approved, and product design and manufacture is done in the UK whenever possible.
All Nuxi’s products are carefuly sourced to be of the highest possible quality.
Giclee prints use archival inks on acid-free conservation paper, and tests have shown colours last 70 to 80 years at least.
Jan lives and works in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, Manchester.
