Mel Smith is another of our very successful alumni! Having spent a few years freelancing & working in a small greetings card company, Mel is now working on her own projects. Her designs have been sold in John Lewis & several other stores nationwide. She is currently running a Kickstarter project to raise money to create an eco-friendly, patterned notebook collection. She is also attending Top Drawer/Home 2014 where she plans to fully launch her brand 'Mel Smith Designs' with a selection of lampshades, cushions, kitchen textiles as well as her notebooks.
She has also recently launched a licensed collection with Keka Cases & has designed cute wedding stationery for a friend.
We wish Mel good luck with launching at Top Drawer/Home 2014! You can visit her on her website, blog, Facebook or Twitter.
