Victoria Real has designed a website to accompany BBC Children’s Education Xchange programme, which gives sevento 11-year-olds ideas for things to do in the summer holidays. The site www.bbc.co.uk/xchange, launching on 9 April, features three ‘learning islands’: sport, art and design and science. Topics vary from ballroom dancing to pot-bellied pigs. Stamps issued as children log in can be exchanged for screen savers. ‘The site is implicitly educational,’ says Victoria Real producer Juliet Roberts.
The online publication will explore a range of issues through a unique typographic system that aligns subject matter with specific fonts.
As the designer publishes his latest book, Drama, we talk to him about his childhood in the theatre, storytelling and the power of being “an outsider”.
Cryptocurrency, not traditionally a design-led sector, now poses plenty of opportunities and challenges for studios.
Universities and the Design Council condemn the proposals as “short-sighted” and uninformed by real statistics.
