V&A Designers of the Future Exhibition

A small but perfectly formed exhibition is taking place in Room 220 of the V&A's Sackler Centre, from June 15th to July 31st. Here is the brief description from their website:

"This display will showcase work by art and design students from the University of Brighton and the Royal College of Art inspired by the V&A and its collections. A related conference exploring museum and higher education collaboration will take place in July 2010."

Seizing a nice opportunity to get some work exhibited by one of country's most prestigious museums, Abby Byrne, Kelly Satchell and myself created a typographic triptych of some of our favourite design quotes in silkscreen. It evolved from the inspiration of the V&A's preservation of precious printed or caligraphically rendered ancient scriptures (see this earlier post). The idea was to create precious, fancifully rendered scriptures for own purposes of guidance as fledgling designers.

This is a little peak at my print — my quote is from David Craib,

The three prints have been bubble-wrapped into their frames and are most likely sat in a cupboard awaiting hanging in London, but once on display I will get some proper photographs of the three of them  in all their glory!

  1. Where did you find the information for the exhibition? I've looked lots and can't find anything...
