We organise Blogger Brunches for our monthly market at Old Spitalfields and for our pop up events.
Our Bloggers Brunch is a great way for design inspired bloggers to meet one another and find out more about Designers/Makers and our talented members!

Designers/Makers now offer retail consulting to help museums, cultural institutions, independent and specialty retailers evaluate, develop, plan, and enhance their retail venue.
We view all projects as a collaboration with our clients and Designers. We bring with us an understanding of the retail industry and current market trends that will influence the shops success, alongside a large database of Designers that we source products from.
Our experience of running our own shops, markets and exhibitions with Designers has given us a unique insight into shopping trends that we use to develop strategies for retailers that in turn enable them to become more competitive.

Wednesday – Sunday 11-6pm
We are delighted to announce that we have selected the 40 Designer Makers who will be exhibiting their work at the Designers/Makers FLORA + FAUNA Pop-Up Shop in London’s famous Columbia Road as part of the London Design Festival.
We have invited Designer Makers from around the UK to submit their ideas in response to the theme, Flora + Fauna. The project provides a great opportunity for flourishing British Designer Makers to exhibit their work in a creative space and it will also be a chance for shoppers and visitors to explore the theme in an aesthetically beautiful, eclectic setting.
The Designer Makers We have selected have demonstrated a commitment and passion for both independent design and for developing their brand. We have covered differing areas of design to accommodate varying interests, including: fashion, interior design, glass, jewellery, stationery, furniture, ceramics, metalwork and prints.
