Oakdene Designs is a team of young budding designers and makers working from our gorgeous converted barn in a small village in Surrey. Every product we offer is designed and made by us in our studios, and we help to support other small businesses by sourcing our materials from British suppliers.

Oakdene Designs was founded in 2012 by Ben Grist while on his placement year at University. Ben started his business career aged just 17, when he began designing and manufacturing high end chicken coops.

Oakdene Designs range of wall stickers went from strength to strength, and Ben decided to leave his product design degree in his final year in order to work on the business full time.

The business became a hive of creativity, Ben hired some very talented young designers who work with him to this day to create great new products, which the rest of the team make in house.

Two years after going full time on the business, Oakdene Designs reached a million pound turnover. A great achievement for the team.

Today the team has grown from the early days, with seven full time staff and lots more helping out over the busy Christmas period.

    "It proved to be a very surprising, unusual and personal gift. I'll never forget the reaction when I handed over this gift. It was true pleasure and surprise for someone I care a lot. Sometimes you really don't need diamonds in a box to make a good gift for a friend you care about."

    "I bought this for my sister who finally moved into her new house after a complicated seven month exchange. It was just in time for Christmas and so I found this cushion on notonthehighstreet. On Christmas morning I received a message saying she loved the gift and that it made her cry. Job well done!"

Delivery

Our wall stickers are sent in postal tubes. Unroll them and leave them on a flat surface for one hour; this flattens them out and makes application easier. Any bubbles in the vinyl can be removed by pricking them with a pin and then pressing them flat. Instructions are included. Leave newly painted walls for at least two weeks to allow them to fully dry out. Smaller wall stickers are sent in A4 envelopes when possible.

Our prints are carefully rolled into postal tubes for A3 sizes and above. A4 prints are sent flat in stiff carboard envelopes

Canvasses and framed prints are sent in cardboard wraps.

Coasters are packaged in cardboard envelopes where possible.

Delivery is with royal mail or courier.
