Don’t think I’ve done a personal post in a while! In the last few months I’ve graduated from uni and moved out of Norwich, and now I live in London and am working there as a full time junior designer. Yesterday was a nice sunny Saturday and I did a ridiculous amount of design related things…
Started off at Hewett Street Block Party in Shoreditch, which was really good! Loads of nice stalls and food stands, ate a tasty cheeseburger from Elliot’s and possibly the best ice cream ever courtesy of Sorbitium Ices. There was also an exhibition there called Eat Everything, a collection of food related work curated by Belly Kids and hosted by Protein (who are very interesting and have a lot of varied content on their site).
This was followed by a few exhibitions which I will probably blog about fully in the next few days; Uniform Wares 12:24, the Graphic Design Walk exhibition at 71a. Malika Favre - Hide & Seek at Kemistry Gallery and last but not least Dominic Wilcox at KK Outlet.
On any other saturday this would have been a very productive day but thanks to London Design Festival more was to come! Walked down to Brick lane to go to Tent / Superbrands at the Truman Brewery. Both were really good, loads of lovely furniture, textiles and product design. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some of them online to blog about.
After this was much walking, first to the Exmouth coffee company in Aldgate then the London Book Art Fair at the Whitechapel gallery next door. Then through the mainly empty city, across the river to Borough market, then to Tate Modern to check out the new ‘The Tanks’ section they have opened, a must see for concrete lovers (pics here). The last exhibition of the day was Designers Block at the Southbank, for yet more furniture and nice things. Best of all was a Y shaped 3 way table tennis table outside the entrance!
