Preparing for London Design Festival
Well, everything has been a whirlwind since I got back from Slovenia…
I’ve turned my house upside down – because I’ve been in re-organisation mode, but I’m much happier with the way things are functioning at home/work for me now. Which is good.
Meanwhile, work-wise, I’m racing against the clock to get everything ready for TENT, which is part of the London Design Festival. The LDF takes place in late September, and, with luck, should provide a good showcase for my work.
I’m hoping for a few commissions, and I’ve been refining two of my ranges – the table-place names and the undulating shelves. A lot of friends and clients have been very kind in suggesting ways that the design of them could be tightened up, and I’ve been experimenting.
Still, I have to get down to making some finished samples now, ready for the show.
One nice thing about the festival is that I’m going down there with a group of colleagues from here in the North-East. Under the umbrella-name of ‘Design Event’ we are going to share a stand. More about that nearer the time, but it’s good to think I’ll be there at the festival with friends.
