Gemma Tickle (let’s get this over with, it’s the best name ever) is a set designer, but it was only when I saw an eyeball floating on a pyramid of flour that I realised Gemma is a little different to the set designers we’ve seen before. Working from London, Gemma’s eye for strategically arranging glossy and bizarre items has been picked up and used by clients such as British Airways and VIEWPOINT magazine. This is hardly the most exciting bit though, Gemma’s rare expertise at being able to beautifully prop a Flump marshmallow against a surface has attracted some of the world’s most prolific still-life photographers to work with her, including Carl Kleiner, Kate Jackling and Jenny Van Sommers.
