London Design Week Picks: Pulp

As promised, today I’m focussing on one of my favourite discoveries of Design Junction, which was Pulp. I kind of can’t believe I’ve never heard of them before as they do such great stuff!

Stationery Picks of London Design Week

This year London Design Week unfortunately clashed with an incredibly busy work week for me so I didn’t get to see as much as I’d’ve liked… But I did get to see a few things I’d like to share. First off, these rad pencil sharpeners from The Wish List exhibition at the V&A: The concept… Read more »

An old pen I’m not sure what to do with…

On a drive back from Shropshire this weekend, we ended up stopping off at a little village for lunch. The village were having a summer fair and there were stalls of bits and bobs all out in the street. We were in a bit of a hurry but I just had time to find this… Read more »
