London Design Festival 2009


The Lon­don Design Fes­ti­val opened this past wee­kend, kicking off a week of over 163 exhi­bi­ti­ons and 42 one-day events show­ca­sing the city’s best in archi­tec­ture, art, craft and pro­duct, gra­phic and digi­tal design. For the third year run­ning Dome­nic Lippa and his team have worked with the LDF to pro­duce ever­y­thing from t-shirts, bags, invi­ta­ti­ons, pos­ters and post­cards, through to the guide, signage and dis­plays. This year’s theme of “Be Bold, Make a State­ment” reflects the Festival’s stance that good design, even in dif­fi­cult times, will always stand out. This year’s iden­tity uses quo­tes from famous desi­gners, inclu­ding Pen­ta­gram co-founder Alan Fletcher. 


This year the fes­ti­val has worked clo­sely with the V&A, which has become the hub venue and home to nume­rous instal­la­ti­ons, exhi­bi­ti­ons and talks. These include a pos­ter exhi­bi­tion cura­ted by Lippa that fea­tures work by 20 Lon­don desi­gners, inclu­ding our own Angus Hyland, and a talk by talk by New York part­ner Abbott Mil­ler on the 24th


As part of this gro­wing annual event the team also worked on sup­port mate­rial for the Lon­don Design Medal, as well as crea­ting a new logo for the Lon­don Design Embassy.
