Fanny Shorter

When Fanny Shorter won the confessions of a design geek bursary in January, part of her prize was a photo shoot with Yeshen Venema and a film shoot with R&A Collaborations. I am super excited to be able to share the results of both shoots with you.

All the photos in this post were taken by Yeshen as part of his shoot (there are many many more!), and Richard and Aaron at R&A have made this beautiful film showing Fanny hand screen printing her products…

I’d like to say a massive thank you to Yeshen, Richard and Aaron and everybody else who makes the confessions of a design geek bursary possible. We’re already plotting the 2015 bursary, so watch this space!
