We’ve rounded up some of the most exciting alumni work designed for this year’s festival – have you caught any of these shows?
Designer and PGDip Design for Visual Communication graduate Susanna Foppoli presents ‘The Formal Beauty of Type’ at The Book Club, Shoreditch, open now until Sunday 16 November.
This solo exhibition comprises a series of abstract typographic compositions which uses a restricted colour palette of black, white and red.
The work was originally designed as part of an academic study of the formal qualities and personalities of selected typefaces across typographic history, and the show celebrates both the aesthetic power and structural detail of these letterforms.
One of five projects selected from over 100 proposals, ‘The Rooftop Line’ took inspiration from New York’s High Line and Camden Town station and saw Romain and Tsvetelina setting a model train fitted with a webcam in motion around a Camden rooftop.
The webcam ran throughout the day with footage streamed online and to an exhibition space at 26 Camden High Street. The project was designed to inject creativity and playfulness into some of London’s more unloved or neglected urban spaces.
Elsewhere, MA Design Management graduate Natasha Montgomery was coordinating multiple events during LDF as the co-founder and curator of Brixton Design Week.
Highlights included a Change Brixton by Design workshop, bringing together designers, public organisations and individuals to share ideas and good practice around design, the Brixi Army group exhibition and the Brixton Pound New Independents party.
The pavement outside Brixton tube station was also transformed with graffiti installation ‘Flash’ by Brixton-based fashion and design company Eley Kishimoto.
Congratulations to everyone on their fantastic LDF creations, and here’s to 2015!
