Design Nation

Am so pleased to have been selected to become a member of the prestigious Design Nation group. I’ve been aware of and admired their work for a long time, and this year felt like the right time to apply for membership. I can’t wait to see what opportunities arise….

From the Design Nation website:

DESIGN-NATION IS A LEADING PORTFOLIO FOR DESIGNER-MAKERS BASED IN THE UK WHO CREATE CRAFT, DESIGN AND PRODUCT.

Our mission is to bring together partners, champions and investment, to strengthen business and creative development in the contemporary design and crafts sector. Our online portfolio was launched as a resource for designers, architects, interior decorators, retailers, manufacturers and the general public, in fact for anyone interested in the best of contemporary craft and design.

Design-Nation was founded in 1999 by the late Peta Levi MBE , who previously established the prestigious talent-spotting showcase New Designers. Peta’s ambition created a rich design resource for those who wish to Collaborate, Consult, Commission, Trade, Buy, Collect, Source, Research and Innovate.
