Colours of (East) London

Graffiti and street art of a city reflects people, place, culture, society, politics and much much more. Our PDD pop-up at LDF this year was in East London, nestled in the heart of creative and sometimes controversial artistic expression. As part of our exhibition we explored graffiti around the world, understanding how the social and cultural context of each place is reflected in, and sometimes influences, the surround street art.

“West meets East”

This September we returned to the London Design Festival (LDF), making the journey across town from West London to set up home in a large gallery space on Redchurch Street. This enabled us to run our Human-Centred Design (HCD) taster workshops and showcase two other installations: cultural insights on graffiti from five global cities on large format posters and an interactive trend map, exploring different approaches to beauty around the world.

If you haven’t done so already come and visit us at our pop-up space for LDF13 at The Gallery, 50 Redchurch Street, E2 7DP. The sun will be shining and just in case it does rain the exhibition is indoors… so no excuses :). Have a great evening reading some of the links that have been flying around the studio this week and I hope to see you this weekend.

Links from the Studio 13.09.13

Nearly everywhere I turn I see these colourful pieces on housing estates, cemeteries, tube stations and shop walls. If you’re lucky enough to have one on your house, it could even increase the price of your home. Yes, I am taking about street art. As part of our #LDF13 Human-Centred Design workshops we will also be running street art tours in collaboration with a local expert. Book your place for a graffiti tour to discover a different side of East London. And here are this weeks links from the studio.

A debut to remember at the London Design Festival

With the London Design Festival fast approaching, we wondered whether we could provide a little taster of our 2-day Human-Centred Design workshop in only 90-minutes. There was only one way to find out.
