Carrie Louise is a set designer who not only rocks the first-name-as-a-surname thing, but also creates some stupendously cool set designs. Working with big name photographers like Dean Chalkley and Patrice De Villiers as well as pursuing some great personal work, the Brighton University graduate has a fantastic eye for composition and colour. Don’t believe me? Check out her opulent still-lifes for Harrods, where the the tables groan under their greedy loads in a superb homage to the Flemish masters of yesteryear. She can also do silly and surreal without being “wacky” (a treacherous line to tiptoe for contemporary creatives) and she turns her talents to film and events for the likes of Secret Cinema too. Splendid on every level.
