Now Clerkenwell Design Week is over, we can start thinking about all the other great shows coming up and one of our favourites has to be New Designers. Taking place once more in Islington’s Business Design Centre from 28 June – 1 July and 5–8 July., one of the best parts of the shows is One year On, the feature area that looks back on those whose businesses are less than one year old.  Here, we highlight just a few of the 80 exhibiting.
