Katie Webb is another alumnus of the Manchester School of Art. Mr Monkey admired the classic lines and cool colours of her designs, which were influenced by Scandinavian architecture and design and use locally sourced materials. Paul Griffiths was nominated for his Babycakes shop and clothing label and its youth focussed business model. The T-shirt in the poster uses photos taken during a protest against Babycakes in London, which Mr Monkey thinks is quite a good idea*.
* The T-shirt, not the protest. That was just misguided.
You can read about Babycakes at the Babycakes Clothing website.
