After 12 years the Brompton Design District required a new look. I commissioned Milan-based Studio Vedet to create a strong identity and website. This was implemented in summer 2018, in advance of our programme for London Design Festival, Material Consequences set by Curator Jane Withers.
The website draws attention to the annual London Design Festival programme which includes a series of exhibits and events, and outlines the District’s rich history of design and culture through Brompton’s permanent museum institutions, iconic brands and galleries.
A big part of the Brompton identity is a printed Map or guide to the exhibition programme. Other printed elements included a large poster for the Talks Programme, large scale maps attached outside buildings and 20 Interpretation Boards printed on recycled cardboard for different exhibits across Brompton.
Lastly, the Brompton programme required a complex Wayfinding project, I commissioned Glyphics sign-makers to create a range of high-level wooden protruding signs, pavement graphics in aluminium foil and wooden freestanding outdoor signs. All signs and signage fitted the Material Consequences theme, which meant all elements were reusable or recycled after the event.
The Material Consequences programme for Brompton Design District ran from 15-23 September during the annual London Design Festival, with largest ever attendance numbers in Brompton. The District boasted 36 exhibits, 20 pop-ups exhibitions, 12 talks, 6 podcasts and an open evening on Thursday 20 September.
