Javier Mariscal exhibition in the London Design Museum

Visited the Design Museum in London this week. They had two exhibitions on, Super Contemporary and one on Javier Marsical.

There was a great timeline about design in the UK that contained a huge amount of information and jump points into lots of areas. One that really interested me was the design of the roadsigns in the UK. One single design to unite them all and they left real genuine designers design them. Civil service working well.


Javier Mariscal is the guy that you might know more as the guy that designed the mascot for the Barcelona Olympics but is famous in design for so much more. Here are some photos and videos from that exhibition:

    Have you been to the Tate yet Damien? It’s on until the Open House London weekend, so I’d travel for both if the Futurism exhibit was woth seeing.

    We have a weekend coming up in London and so many interesting places to visit, V&A, Science & Natural History museums. I have another one to add to the list of possibles. Love the 3D letters. Dare I ask, what they were made from?
    Visiting these places is great for inspiration and new ideas. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. Fantastic, thanks. We’re going to London in October and will definitely take in the Design Museum.

    The motorway signage system, like much great design appears to be so simple, yet it’s effective. We could do with that here.

    Janvier’s work is great – has such an impact! I would definitely recommend going to The Super Contemporary Exhibition – all the artists have displayed a great array depicting old/new london and there’s a real sense of a celebration to London city.
