I am incredibly proud to be part of and win the Designer of the year award at the London Stationery Show in April 2019. Below is the press release for the awards. It’s fantastic to read what GO Stationery thought about my designs and work for this project.

WINNERS REVEALED FOR 2019 STATIONERY AWARDS
The Stationery Awards are in their eighth year, but this year was a first for two new categories recognising Retailer and Designer contributions to the stationery industry.
The winners for this year’s Awards, which aim to recognise and benchmark good practice and innovation in the retail stationery sector, were announced at an informal drinks evening held after the first day of Stationery Show London.
Representatives from Award sponsors AT Cross, GO Stationery, Craft Business and The Giftware Association, along with a selection of the Supplier and Retailer judges all took part to help announce the winners.
2019 WINNER – DESIGNER STATIONERY AWARD
The Stationery Designer of the Year Award, sponsored by GO Stationery was won by Laura Jackson, of Laura Jackson Design.
Laura trained in Jewellery Design & Silversmithing at the esteemed School of Jewellery in Birmingham and then embarked on a career in luxury fashion. She spent eight years in design and development at several high-profile international brands in Birmingham and London, before embarking on a nine-month exploration around Asia and the Pacific.
Inspired by her travels she now designs a range of homewares and interior products, all of which are made in the UK.
The team at GO Stationery selected Laura’s submission saying:
“A bold, striking, commercial and very versatile winning design - fully adaptable with endless opportunity. Laura clearly knows stationery and proposed the top two selling formats.
“She also went the extra mile and proposed a print specification and price and therefore not only entered with a design concept but has taken it all the way to manufacture ready!”
