A nice image-heavy post for you here! A few photos I took at the Pick Me Up exhibition from the other week. Not particularly great photos I have to admit, everything looked a lot better in real life. But thought I’d share a few of my favourite things anyway.
For those that don’t know, Pick Me Up is an annual exhibition at Somerset House in London featuring all the best graphic and illustration artists, collectives, shops and publishers. It’s a great showcase of the contemporary design world. Themes and trends we noticed throughout the exhibition were: the alphabet, greasy food (in particular chips, burgers and pizzas) and cute foxes.
