DESIGN WEEK: DESIGN INSPIRATION
Design Week selects KCAW new visual identity as one of favourite projects in February.
Art and cultural event, Kensington and Chelsea Art Weekend, takes place for the second time this year from 28-30 June, and will see three days of exhibitions and talks across galleries, design studios and museums.
Its new brand identity, designed by AH-KB, is inspired by the punk heritage of the West London area, which centred around King’s Road in the 1970s. The identity features a bold, all-capitals logo, complemented by a shortened, acronym version of K-C-A-W, used alongside contrasting, bright colours and a slash graphic device.
The studio says it has been inspired by the posters of punk band the Sex Pistols but looked to pare this style down to be more “contemporary”.
