One Year On, a hotly anticipated showcase of the most exciting design talents in their first year of business, returns as part of New Designers this summer.
These 80 talented individuals have been selected by a panel of experts from across the design industry, and represent homeware, graphics, furniture, textiles, ceramics, jewellery and illustration.
The three designers featured on this page are Plymouth graduate James Rae, who used his illustration skills to help launch a start-up online rental service called PapayaPods; Benjamin Craven, whose bold, colourful Memphis-inspired prints use reclaimed wood as part of the screenprinting process; and Laura Alice, whose range of minimalist landmark icons recently formed part of a major national poster campaign.
All exhibited work is available to purchase or commission, enabling visitors to One Year On to buy directly from designers at the show.
