In 2011 I created a new design event, The Manchester Print Fair. The aim was to create a platform for local artists and designers to sell work, engage with the public and network, and over the last 5 years has done just that.
From humble beginnings at Night and Day Cafe with a handful of sellers we have grown from strength to strength; hosted at iconic buildings such as London Road Fire Station and Manchester Central Library, collaborated with designers from all over the world and been continuously supported by wonderfully creative organisations such as G.F Smith, Fred Aldous and Design Manchester.
Some of my favourite personal design work, comes in the shape of the fair's posters which I sell as momentos of the event. It lets me express my passion for history, architecture and classic modern design elements, using each building as a focus for the design
