Digby Illustrations, a local Ballymena based business producing illustrated map prints, has entered into a partnership with Allster, the innovative local produce showcase at Belfast International Airport.


The collaboration will bring Digby Illustrations' unique offerings to a global audience, enabling travellers from all over the world to discover and enjoy the beautiful art prints, showcasing local landmarks from a new perspective. These include Mussenden Temple, The Giant’s Causeway, Portrush, and Dunluce Castle among others.



"We are thrilled to join Allster's retail showcase at Belfast International Airport, which allows us to share the passion we put into our illustrations with the world," said Michael Digby, co-founder and creative talent behind Digby Illustrations.

Sarah Patterson, Michael’s sister, and the other half of Digby Illustrations, added:


"Being stocked in the airport is such an exciting opportunity for a small business like ours and allows us to tap in to a huge customer base."


The Allster retail showcase provides a unique platform for local suppliers, entrepreneurs, and artisans to reach a global market, offering travellers the chance to purchase authentic and locally-produced items. It supports Allster’s online marketplace www.allster.co which makes over 15,000 products, sourced locally in Ulster, available to the world. 



“We are so pleased to have Digby Illustrations’s products available at the airport” said Allster Founder, Eddie Holmes. “Since returning to Northern Ireland after 20 years abroad, it never ceases to amaze me just how creative, innovative and committed to quality people like Digby Illustrations are.


"Hopefully the travelling public will enjoy discovering their amazing art prints during what promises to be Belfast International’s busiest year ever.”
