Designs of the Year 2012
The Designs of the Year awards are an annual scheme held at the Design Museum to celebrate outstanding, innovative and progressive contributions to design across a broad spectrum of disciplines. For the 2012 Awards exhibition we worked with 3D designer Michael Marriott to create a flexible display system, which allowed changes to be made easily and at short notice as announcements were made throughout the course of the exhibition.
Our designs built upon the graphic lines of the existing Designs of the Year logotype, creating a signage system which could be altered by Design Museum staff; object labels were digitally printed onto beermat board to accommodate last-minute changes whilst giving a warm and modest feel. For the walls, we worked with the exhibition’s curators to design information graphics drawn from previous years’ data, contextualising and reinterpreting the awards and their history.
