Hole In My Pocket

"Hole in my Pocket create work with a lopsided and utterly uncynical charm that makes delighted children out of the most serious of grown-ups."

Hole in my Pocket is the studio of architect and illustrator Allistair J Burt.

As Hole in my Pocket, Allistair has worked on a vast range of projects from major exhibitions, illustration, short films, storytelling machines and traveling around Scotland with an air-hostess trolley. 


We are home to some amazing collections of design led humour work all drawn by illustrator / Architect Allistair Burt including A Life on the Ocean Waves, A Day at the Zoo, Film Club, Lucky Pine Sawmill and our Scottish themed work Eat Haggis (

All our cards are designed and printed in Scotland.

Our work can be found in brilliant museums, galleries and wonderful independent stores all around the world, the UK and Scotland.

In 2020 the bespoke collection we created for the National Trust for Scotland was shortlisted for the prestigious Cultural Enterprise Association best product award. Other clients we have produced collections for include, The National Museum of Scotland, The V&A Dundee, The Deep, Fenwick's Department store and Glasgow Museums.
