Think inside the box.
Too often we associate how we learn or work with the physical space in which it takes place. Not realising the potential that lies within the very walls that many of us have been confined to during lockdown. It's time to think inside the box and shape our environment to inspire our work, education and creativity.
Delighted to be part of Belfast Design Week’s pop-up museum alongside many other great designers. We had the chance to exhibit our piece exploring the theme of environment, specifically the role of design in education and learning, in the window of Learning SPACE, an educational advisory, toy, and resource organisation.
We wanted people to disconnect their ability to learn or work in a specific space and instead recognise the potential of any space to inspire them. COVID has confined many of us to the comfort of our homes and meant that we have all had to adapt to new ways of learning, for once we wanted people to think inside the box. Placing our statement between the two words of the shop was the perfect visual of what we wanted passers-by to do. Using a Memphis inspired design we were able to connect our typographic approach to the shop itself.
