On Saturday 7th July, The Brand Doctor’s team of designers went to London to check out the hottest, freshest design talents at Part One of The New Designers exhibition 2007, Business Design Centre, London N1. Nicky our senior graphic designer, had actually exhibited at this show a few years back when studying at Northbrook College, Worthing.We saw everything from fashion to furniture, architecture to accessories, graphics to glass, new media to contemporary applied arts. One of our favourite textile designers there had been approached by Jaguar and H&M Fashions.
Some of our favourites there were:
Norma Sales: Glass Artist/Designer: www.redhouseglass.co.uk
Amazing memory branches. The work and story behind this artist touched our hearts.
Shivashtie Poonwassie: Ceramic & Glass Artist Sculptor. (photo of amazing brick wall face sculpture on its way)
Harrison Forbes: Embroidery and Print Illustrator: www.harrisonforbes.co.uk (still under construction – these artists!!)
