[London Design Festival encounters]: Imprint at Craft Central

BLOG_STRIP_Imprint-Exb_WEB-3Last Tuesday, we went along to the private viewing of the Imprint Exhibition (as part of the London Design Festival and the Clerkenwell Design Quarter) held at Craft Central in Clerkenwell – our first LDF13 event of the week –  that showcased the works of a broad range of designers who use various methods of printing or mark-making to their designs. With glasses of fizz in hand we meandered through the many displays of ‘printed design’ that ranged from screen prints and letterpress to digital and 3D printing, ceramics to furniture and many many more. It was a wonderful evening, buzzing with creativity and excitement, that we left feeling so inspired ourselves! And how cool are the screen-printed posters for the exhibition by Turnbull Grey?! I just LOVE the flourescent orange exclamation mark against the somber grey background colour – very slick indeed!
