Join us for an out-of-hours tour of ILLUSTRATE, part of Northern Design Festival (formerly Design Event), led by exhibition curator, Olivia Ahmad.
ILLUSTRATE is an exhibition of work by leading illustration practitioners based in the North of England whose work is seen in newspapers, the small press, interiors, fashion and advertising will exhibit work produced outside the confines of a brief. It will include previously unseen original artwork, prints and objects. Selected works will be available to purchase.
Also showing at Globe Gallery – Design Event MART a selling exhibition which features furniture, lighting, surface design, textiles, jewellery and product design. 25 Northern designers have been confirmed – for more details go to http://www.design-event.co.uk/MART2013
Northern Design Festival celebrates design across all sectors and has an array of exhibitions, events, talks and workshops to inspire and delight. The theme for 2013 is Create:Digital and examines the recent advances in digital technologies that have impacted designers’ work and processes leading to the development of highly creative work, which only a few short years ago would have been considered unachievable.
