They really liked my artwork and so I secured this amazing project!”

The team at The Design Hub are huge fans of this particular designer and certainly believe she needs another shout out. If you’ve read Laura Olivia’s interview on the blog you’ll understand why she’s getting so much attention from the design industry. Her vibrant prints and electric colour palette have attracted the attention of Jethro Macey who picked Laura to exhibit in his One Year On exhibition at New Designers 2011, as well as MyDeco who’ve added her designs to their exclusive online boutique store.
