Maker’s Space’ was a two-day event. The space held a series of designer-led crafting workshops. Subjects included lamp making by, , bookbinding by, screen printing by , embroidery by and ceramics by.
We were commissioned to design the brand identity and environment design for ‘Makers’ Space’. A part of the European Championship Festival 2018, Maker’s Space, held in Merchant Square occupied a destination right in the hub of the festival.
The brand identity was developed around the simple idea of of ‘Thinking with Material’. Using a photographic approach helped us to position the event in a fresh and surprising way, so not to fall into the tropes of craft – ie. swooshes of paint and distressed/cut out typography. The typeface chosen was Faro Happy, while balancing the eccentric photography still .
The event was a huge success, with packed stalls throughout both days and over 2000 people attending.
