Kate Guy is a print maker and graphic designer based in North West London. Working mainly with linocut Kate has developed a striking and bold style that is instantly recognisable.

Ink & Brayer
Ink & Brayer creates limited edition linocut prints in North London and was set up by printmaker Jess Linden White. Jess loves animals and plants and her inspiration comes mainly from the natural world here on Earth, but her work also features fantastical things from further afield into space, as science fiction is a particular fascination. The prints are made using high quality inks and papers and each picture in an edition is carefully hand-printed, signed and numbered, so there are little variations and no two are exactly the same – you’ll be owning or gifting a totally unique original. Follow Ink & Brayer on Instagram @inkandbrayerstudio.
I play with textures, materials and a muted palette to create individual, thoughtful and functional items in clay and rope. In developing each individual piece I’m not seeking uniformity, rather the enjoyment of exploration. All products are handmade by me in East London. Follow Haar East on Instagram at @haar_east.

Katie Clement Design
Designed and made with attention to detail in small batches in the UK, Katie Clement Design was born from a love of drawing, and spurred on by always receiving duplicates of the same birthday cards. From her home in East London, and with a love for nature and travel, she creates beautiful handmade greetings cards, art prints and homewares inspired by her family and the surroundings around her. Often combined with a colour pop or a geometric pattern you can find designs for adults and children alike. Follow Katie Clement Design on Instagram @katieclementdesign.

Using a range of techniques, we create digital collages and produce them as framable prints, cards, notebooks and jewellery, using the highest quality materials and sterling silver findings.

Kirsty’s designs are drawn from her conscious and subconscious thoughts. They flow from a meditative state, focusing and clarifying her mind whilst blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. They are inspired by observing and responding to the world around her; shapes, colours, patterns, emotions, and sounds for example. With this specific style of working, she doesn’t have a pre-conceived idea of what the overall image will look like, allowing the process to unravel and for the piece to find its own conclusion. This mindful approach feeds her art practice. Follow Kirsty Riddell on Instagram @kirstyriddelluk.

Naykii’s original prints and collages inspire her cushion cover designs and those of many of her other items. Animals, particularly owls, feature heavily in her work. Her prints are carved by hand and printed on a press. Some prints are black and white; whilst others have colour added with watercolour paint, paper or thread. Rather than discarding imperfect prints she recycles them to create collages. Naykii’s cushions are screen printed onto heavyweight 100% cotton fabric and feature felt, buttons and hand-embroidery.
