About the Founder
Deborah Causton has been working in the creative and then the online industry since hot marching out of university well over a decade ago. She ran a magazine and has by-lined her professional life with various creative projects. Anikibo was born of a passion for printed material and the frustration of not being able to bring home everything of newly discovered materials from trips abroad. Spending the last 10 years building websites it was time to merge the two avenues of her creative and digital life. Anikibo is the result of this. Anikibo is a UK Limited company.
