London Design Festival 12 - 20 September 2020

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been looking hard at our options and have consulted our partners, the broad design community, and the Mayor’s office about London Design Festival going ahead in September. 

The overwhelming consensus is that it should, and that it is important the design community stands together in these challenging times. We want to put the spotlight on the brilliance of London’s design scene at a time when it needs to be promoted more than ever.

2020 Landmark Projects

The Hothouse by Studio Weave

London-based architecture practice Studio Weave, supported by Lendlease and LCR, will create The Hothouse, a large-scale installation located at International Quarter London (IQL).  The structure of The Hothouse is reminiscent of a Victorian glasshouse and will provide a controlled habitat for cultivating plants that would not ordinarily grow within the UK’s climate.  

Freelancer Portal

This year, London Design Festival want to put the spotlight on the brilliance of London’s design scene at a time when it needs to be promoted more than ever. We recognise that freelancers in particular have been impacted by the pandemic, and the Festival wants to support this community by providing a voice to new talent and freelancers. As such, for 2020 we have created a freelancer portal where freelancers can share design content and their portfolio with the Festival audience. 

Freelancer content will be presented in the dedicated online gallery with featured spotlights per week, and across social.

2020 Graphic Identity

Since 2007, world-renowned creative agency Pentagram, have produced an annual graphic identity for each iteration of the Festival - responding to, and anticipating, trends in design and typology. While the Festival’s colour theme of white on red has been consistent, Pentagram have adapted each brief to produce distinctive visual identities to ensure that each edition of the Festival is unique. Domenic Lippa, Partner, Pentagram, has led the creative direction of the branding and visual design for the Festival since the very beginning.
