Yesterday I went to visit the Somerset House because of the Pick Me Up 2013 festival which is about to end (tomorrow), as I had been meaning to go since it started. The exhibition is very diverse and colourful, with a lot of inspirations and motivations to be found. However I have to add that I find the visual identity very appealing, colours, type and signage are playful and coloured.
Event though I hoped for more graphic design orientated (less illustrative) work with more lettering and type, the images and projects were amazing to look at, and I was surprised after all by the diversity.
(I also tried to find all the names for the correspondant artworks, but please don’t use this as a reliable source, there are just too many and I want to apologise about the ones I don’t know the artist’s name. I don’t claim any rights to any of these artworks.)
