Pick Me Up returned to Somerset House for its seventh year, featuring a fresh line-up of artists and designers who brought the best of new illustration, graphic design and related disciplines to inspire and delight. Vibrant, engaging and packed full of exciting things to see, do and buy, Pick Me Up 2016 will feature a whole host of different working processes and techniques ranging from traditional screen-printing to animation, risograph printing to paper craft.
Both emerging and established talent set up interactive workspaces throughout the Embankment Galleries for the 12 days of the festival. Each representing a different form of graphic art, the studios offered visitors plenty of opportunities to engage with the artists and designers directly, see work being made onsite, and even create their own work. The original pieces produced throughout the festival, plus limited edition prints and accessories, were available for purchase with prices ranging between £5 and £200.
