Design Made Trade

Print titled 're-birth' by Studiooats

Recently went to the Design Made Trade, a very awesome fair with a whole lot of local and international designers/artists showing off their wares and their immense talent. I didn’t take my camera with me because I knew we wouldn’t be allowed to take any photographs, me being the goody two shoes I am, but lo and behold everyone was taking pictures, some discretely and some not so. So unfortunately I couldn’t get any snaps of this very cool fair. The fair itself was promoting sustainable design, which in my book was brilliant, I was very glad to see more artists and designers be more environmentally conscious and find ways to lessen plastic packaging, make products durable and re-usable and finding more ways to reuse materials such as making books from handmade recycled papers, or off cuts of wood to be made into stools or tables. There was even a business who recycled plastic and made them into very cool lamps, most you’ll find in places like classy bars and night clubs. I could go on an on about this fair but the one place that really caught my attention was the stand ‘Studiooats’. This company blows my mind! They do beautiful illustrations and have recently released a card series promoting the reuse of the card. They haven’t updated their website yet with their card range, but be sure to check them out anyway. I bought myself on of their limited edition prints which I love to pieces!
