writers reveal 26 treasures in 62 words as part of london design week. the project sees 26 writers paired with 26 objects in the v&a’s british glleries, with each writer writing exactly 62 words in response. the written pieces will be on display next to the objects during the festival. our own copywriter sylvie saunders was one of the writers to be chosen as well as our team designing the identity.
through personal and poetic responses, the writers aim to encourage visitors to take a different, non-scholarly look at precious objects in the v&a’s collection. as their own contribution to the festival the v&a have designed these amazing leaflets about each designers/artists personal inspiration.

the experimental food society was founded in january 2010 to front the uk’s most talented culinary creatives, showcasing a group of ground-breaking gourmet artists that demonstrate there is more to life than just swallowing.
this weekend the gang take over the brickhouse in the east-end promising installations by the ‘jellymongers’, butter sculptors and chocolate landscapers. a £5 day ticket allows you to view the creations but the more costly evening ticket allows you to indulge in tasting the creations and then dance the night away to a food-themed dj set.
