In The Shop
I'll always be more attracted to bold and beautiful brights over tasteful muted colourways, and luckily this year there was lots to choose from at the first New Designers show.
50s influenced surface designs and printed textiles patterns were big news at this years New Designers. Here's my favourite examples of the trend.
I discovered a few real gems on my tour of the fine art shows at the Truman Brewery during week five of the Free Range Shows.
Lindsey Hedges hired illustrator Jenny Lloyd to rebrand her ethical skincare range after seeing her illustrations on these very pages. To celebrate Akamuti's 10th birthday we catch up with both ladies and give our readers an opportunity to get 20% off all products.
There are plenty of things you could say about an arty pop-up shop complete with workshops on everything from comics to ceramics, but 'oh dear' is not one of them.
Excellent new talent spotted at the University of West England illustration degree show at Free Range on 27th June - 1st July 2013.
