It’s time I wrote about what a pleasure it is to work with young designers, and today I’d like to share the names and websites of two of them. When it comes to branding my projects, or making my home feel unique, these people have worked wonders.
Nic Bennett set to on my Flow Contemporary Arts branding in 2012. The brief was to create something that speaks of ‘flow’ without referring to water. That represents reciprocity and flow as found in the Severn Bore, the way the wave is negotiated between the sea and the river. And the outcome, the wave, is energy. So about partnership working.
The logo you see everywhere for flow was Nic’s solution and it’s perfect. He’s now busy doing another for The Story of Objects – we’ll share that in the near future.
Aurelia Lange has created something for my home that celebrates the removal of my chimney breast and having my first ever ‘long wall’ in a tiny terraced house. Flow HQ! I saw Aurelia’s sketch of a view from a train window on her website and she magically transformed it into wallpaper. I live along the Severn and love the train journey from Lydney – on the way to Cardiff or Gloucester I press my nose to the window and relish the views. So this caught my thinking perfectly.
So this is a view of both designers works together:
