From emerging artists to a massive exhibition dedicated to Alan Kitching's incredible typographic design,  ceramics to printmaking, needs-no-introduction Jean Jullien to up-&-coming illustrator and animator Jack Sachs (above), the festival's seventh year is a truly glowing celebration of the best work across a dizzying range of disciplines and talent.

And it has the bonkers, fun atmosphere to match: you can never quite guess what's around the (literal) corner. Whatever your personal taste, you’re bound to pick up enough stuff to transform your house into a crazy, bright illustration treasure trove at Somerset House's Pick Me Up graphics design festival.

You can buy from the massive, amazing bunch of collectives, galleries and studios in pop-up stores and shops brimming with all sorts of pretty goodies that'll catch your eye, whether you're in the mood for a good book or an attention-grabbing tee. At the heart of the festival is the diverse, exciting programme of daily talks and workshops. Not just a festival - Pick Me Up is like an incredible design village (if only we could move there...). 

It was a tough task but we've selected our favourite artists from the festival. Click through to see their brilliant work and what they're all about.
