Multidisciplinary design and production company Red Leader has designed a CD-Rom, Movers & Shakers, to complement London’s Hayward Gallery’s Africa Remix exhibition.
It is currently being distributed to school and community groups and is on display at the adjacent Royal Festival Hall.
The CD features a series of interviews with leading artists, writers and musicians who are involved in the exhibition. It is aimed at inspiring young people to explore a range of career paths in creative endeavours.
The CD cover and layout of the programme draws inspiration from deconstructed designs of woven African fabrics which feature heavily in the Africa Remix exhibition. The animated introduction on the CD also shows a sequence of these designs coming together to form a menu. Red Leader was appointed to the project in November 2004.
According to Katherine Green, founder of Red Leader, ‘We are often working to diversify notions about creative career paths in partnerships with educators and young people.’
