CREATE, the East London creative agency, have commissioned Thorsten van Elten to work with five designers to create well-considered souvenirs. They will draw on the heritage of East London and be the desirable antidote to the overly-commercial, tacky souvenirs on sale across London.
CREATE brings inspiring, engaging art and performance to hundreds of thousands of people. By building virtuous circles between artists, creative organisations and locals, CREATE strives to nurture and grow the creative ambitions of their community.
