At Sorry You’re Happy, we love telling stories. Creating narratives is big part of each collection, giving classic and contemporary themes a fresh, fun twist via uniquely stylized characters, designs and patterns. From Dim Sum Buddies to Marine Munchkins, our collections all have a story to tell!

Sorry You’re Happy will be unveiling more than a dozen brand new collections at Surtex this year. And if that wasn’t exciting enough, two of our collections, Mannerly Monsters and Robot Repairs, have recently been licensed as wall art, night lights and peel & place stickers with Oopsy Daisy, the leading purveyor of art products for the kids market. Along with our other new collections, these lively characters, environments and corresponding patterns are available for further licensing opportunities.

Some of our new collections include The Breakfast Bunch, DimSumbuddies, Family Portrait, Layered Lovelies, Sweet Slumber, In The Garden, and Marine Munchkins. And of course, all the work features bright colors, intriguing textures, delightful details and unexpected surprises. Give your own story an awesome ending with a little help from Sorry You’re Happy!

Sorry You’re Happy collections keep things playful and whimsical, creating characters and patterns that make us happy. We apologize if they make you happy too.

Sorry You're Happy is an art licensing & surface design studio made up of husband and wife illustrators Kyle Reed and Jen Hsieh.
