Minor brushes with celebrity, number 2461: we once played tennis with Tchaik Chassay – architect, Groucho Club founder and sugar daddy to hot design duo Eskimo Design (see 100% Design feature, page 20). His accent was so clipped and posh we thought he was saying Jack, instead of Tchaik, when he introduced himself. Can you tell that we didn’t know who he was? Never mind. Tchaik and the Design Week hack did actually win the match 6-3, 6-4, as we recall.
The start of a new year brought us an identity for a Covid-adapted restaurant, calligraphic coffee branding and a new series of lockdown posters.
Seals set up foundry Vocal Type – which takes inspiration from past protest movements – in the hope of celebrating creatives of colour.
It will be another month spent at home but you can still take in everything from utopian community building to overcoming creative barriers and more.
This year winning work will be given a bigger platform than ever before, we are assembling our biggest ever judging panel and categories have been tweaked for maximum relevance.
