Help Olivia Aspinall Studio exhibit at this year’s London Design Festival.
About this project
Olivia Aspinall Studio is a surface design studio creating lovingly handcrafted and bespoke surfaces for use within interiors. The studio creates surfaces for all sorts of applications including dining tables, shop fits and display pieces.
My name is Olivia Aspinall; I am an independent surface designer. After graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2014, I returned to my home town of Nottingham to set up my design studio. My background in textile design has given me a love for pattern and colour and my aim is to apply this to create beautiful and innovative hard surfaces for the interiors market.
My aim for this Kickstarter campaign is to enable me to exhibit at my first solo show at Design Junction during this year’s London Design Festival. The funds from this campaign will be used to cover the cost of exhibiting at the show.
Since starting the studio I have been lucky enough to work on some really exciting projects. Some of these include creating a bespoke table for a luxury apartment in Soho, creating a welcome desk for Selfridges’ Everbody campaign and creating a collection of display pieces for a new jewellery collection.
During Design Junction I will be launching my first standardised range of surface designs, along with a handmade dining table that will show the potential uses of the surfaces that I create.
Over the last couple of years I have dedicated all my time, energy and creativity into developing the studio. From small beginnings in 2014 I now have big ambitions to keep on growing; creating beautiful and intriguing surface designs.
Shows like this are a really vital way for a small brand like mine to reach out to the right audience. Design Junction attracts a huge amount of visitors, giving me the opportunity to create new contacts as well as grow my public following.
Please pledge to make my Kickstarter campaign happen and help me in the next exciting stage of my company!

Risks and challenges
There are a number of challenges that I face over the coming months, however I am confident that I can make this campaign a success.
I exhibited at Design Junction last year as part of a showcase set up by University of the Arts London, and therefore have a good understanding of what is expected and some of the best ways to make the most of the opportunities the show will provide.
