This year One Year On consists of 80 talented designers in their first year of business who have been selected on the basis of their craft, design flair and quality of their product. The Show is curated by Designer Rheanna Lingham, owner and founder of the Shoreditch Store Luna & Curious.

Amongst homeware, graphics, furniture, textiles, ceramics, jewellery and illustrations, in One Year On design-hunters can discover original ideas, bold contemporary styles and product innovation. The exhibition also reveals the latest trends around ecology and sustainability, new technology such as 3D printing and the contemporary revival of traditional craft techniques such as metal planishing,

Benjamin Craven uses screen-printing and digital techniques to create a bright, bold and signature style for his prints. The heavy use of geometric lines gives order to what appears to be a haphazard array of clashing colours and patterns, resulting in end designs that are anything but accidental.
