Even those of us that are long past our days in full-time education revel in the new starts September can bring, so it’s no wonder that this year – after months spent at home – the new term feels particularly significant. Whether you’re a parent sending the kids back to school, a uni student ready to see what the new academic year might bring, or simply someone who wants to kick-start the new season in style, Redbubble’s wide range of back-to-school products, created and sold by independent artists around the world, should be your first port of call to get prepared.
Founded in 2006 in Melbourne, Australia, Redbubble’s mission was to bring creativity to the masses, all while helping artists earn money. 14 years on, with more than one million artists and over 125 products later, it’s become a go-to destination for uncommon and unique designs, from stickers, masks, apparel, home decor, wall art, phone cases and more. .
Here are five ways Redbubble can help bring in the new academic year in style…
What is a fresh school year without a new backpack to store all your new stationery? Not only could it be just the thing you need to help motivate your child to get organised in the morning, but Redbubble’s wide range of styles means you’re sure to find something special.

It might not have been something you imagined needing to start the new academic year 12 months ago, but masks are a vital part of the “new normal” we now find ourselves in. But that’s not to say they can’t be a way to express your personality – and Redbubble’s selection is a case in point.

If there’s one way to bring out a sense of individuality in a living space, it’s got to be through the art and prints we choose to put on our walls, and at Redbubble, the selection covers all angles – whether you’re after something fun, cute, pretty or bold.
