After our visit to JKR, we went exploring Camden Market. Up to this point I have been researching high end brands, so it was good to now have a look at some smaller companies branding.
Today our studio visited and had a presentation at JKR.
“We’re an independent design agency with studios in London, New York, Singapore and Shanghai. We believe that great design helps brands grow, by abandoning the generic and relentlessly pursuing the unmistakable.”
Today I visited the Museum of Brands which was truly a spectacle to behold.
‘Imagine walking through galleries full to the brim with oddities and wonders alike, where every corner you turn leads you into a different decade. You’ll see Rimmel cosmetics from the 1890s, First World War Oxo Cubes, Mars Bars, Rolos and KitKats from the 1930s, a 1970s Chopper Bike and around 12,000 other items that will open your eyes to the way we lived and shopped.’
Recently I went to visit a working studio where Lewis Heriz worked. Lewis studied English but some how ended up becoming a graphic designer and illustrator.
What better way to be set a brief then in the setting of Duke of Uke. A compact ukulele shop just off brick lane, we took a seat on the floor and were given a new brief. The shop was a treasure trove of ukulele, banjos and other trinkets.
A while back now, we went to the TATE to visit the exhibition, The World Goes Pop.
“Whaaam! Pop! Kapow! This is pop art, but not as you know it.
Tate Modern is ready to tell a global story of pop art, breaking new ground along the way, and revealing a different side to the artistic and cultural phenomenon.
