About us

Redbubble begins with a global community of insanely talented individuals. 400k+ independent artists who make their creations available on select lifestyle products. A shirt with an evil cat. An iPhone case with a hipster pirate.  Whatever your thing, Redbubble has an uncommon design that smacks you right in the heart. As for us? We’re passionate, imaginative, and a little offbeat. An inspired mix that’s helped us grow revenues over 50% in just the past year! (We’re also nice, well-balanced folks with lives outside of work.)  Founded in Fitzroy, Redbubble now has main offices in the CBD, Melbourne, Australia; South of Market, San Francisco; and our newest office coming soon to Berlin, Germany!
