The London Design Festival is predominantly about big name product and furniture designers putting their wares on display and staking their claim to the beautifully crafted throne of design greatness. But there are a whole host of other creatives slaving away to make the event as successful as it is, and they’re often overlooked. I’m talking of course, about graphic designers and the sterling work they do creating the signage, promotional material and environments for all aspects of the festival, the poor loves.
One studio who managed to produce a remarkable amount of work for the LDF was Bravo Charlie Mike Hotel. The east London-based studio smashed out a vast quantity of quality work for the likes of Design Junction, Studio Toogood and Another Country, but did anyone at the festival notice? We hope so, but if not let’s right that wrong and bask in the brilliance of a studio at the top of their game producing work for one of the world’s top design festivals. Nice!
