New York Design Week has just ended, but this September London will be awash in the distinctive red and white of the London Design Festival. For the third year running Domenic Lippa has reprised his role as the art director of the festival, which is the umbrella organisation for London’s annual celebration of design. The Festival was announced by Festival Chairman Sir John Sorrell and Director Ben Evans at a launch last week at the V&A.
The theme of this year’s Festival is “Be Bold” and serves as a challenge by the Festival organisers that events be provocative, inspiring and unique. With designer Jeremy Kunze, Lippa has created the look and feel for the Festival. A feature of this year’s identity is the use of quotes from famous designers, including Pentagram co-founder Alan Fletcher (see the designer tote above).
