London Design Festival 2019

The 2019 identity was based on Shorthand. The world is experiencing the fastest changes in technology, innovation, culture and society. Our lives have been transformed, and design is at the centre of this. Ideas are being shared and communicated quicker than ever: and the 2019 identity reflected this dynamism through typography.  Landmark Projects •Please Be Seated by Paul Cocksedge •Sea Things by Sam Jacob Festival Commissions •Disco Carbonara by Martino Gamper •Iri-Descent by Liz West •Life Labyrinth by PATTERNITY •VOID by Dan Tobin Smith + The Experience Machine Special Projects •Idiosincratico by Martino Gamper •Take The Plunge by Volume Creative •Walala Lounge by Camille Walala V&A Activity •6 commissioned projects designed by Terence Woodgate, Sebastian Cox, Studiomama, Marlene Huissoud, Raw Edges, Dallas-Pierce-Quintero, Tomoko Azumi, Max Lamb, Martino Gamper, Jasper Morrison, Sony Design, Matthew McCormick, Kengo Kuma, Rony Plesl, and Sam Jacob •Global Design Forum with 70 international speakers, including Kengo Kuma, Yves Behar, Dame Vivienne Westwood,Marlene Huissoud, PATTERNITY, Fabio Novembre, Shoshanna Stewart and Kwame Kwei-Armah London Activity •300 Partner events •4 Design Destinations •11 Design Districts •1 Design Route
