I attended the Best of British Design Open Call at Liberty's in London yesterday with my suitcase of Hand-Cut & Drawn cards. The event is an opportunity for designers and makers to meet buyers for Liberty, show their wares and get some advice and possibly be selected to sell work in the shop at a later date. I arrived at 11.00 and managed to avoid the queues which had built up from 7am. I met 2 buyers and had 3 minutes to pitch my product. They liked the cards and gave me some constructive advice about how to present them and suggested I return for the next open call in August.
