Pick Me Up

Last week was every graphic / surface designer's dream - Sommerset House's 'Pick Me Up' Design festival. With a rare focus on graphic arts including illustration, typography and even clay with it's richly decorated surfaces, it was a total feast for the eyes. With the chance to create your own letterpress print, modle with clay or screen print a tote bag, it was a really interactive experience as well as a party for the senses. I wished I had more time to return to many of the talks and workshops throughout the festival but above are some of my favourite picks from Clay Collective and Camilla Perkins.
