Industrial designer and bicycle enthusiast Ben Wilson has created an installation and exhibition for the Design Museum that will celebrate the start of this year’s Tour de France in London. Showcasing four seminal designs, Fixed will explore the evolution of the fixed-gear bicycle from 1888 to the present day. On 8 July, the museum will host a viewing of the event as it departs London en route to Canterbury, Kent, for the first leg of the race. Viewers are asked to bring along their bikes and contribute to a film, specially created for the museum archives.
From a playful zine, to a “tribal” title sequence and “tongue-in-cheek” wine brand, these are the design projects that caught our eye in July.
London studio Among Equals has crafted the campaign, which takes inspiration from 1940s propaganda and reframes Churchillian language.
In-house design experts question the utility of portfolios when applying for jobs, instead preferring a more narrative approach with case studies where possible.
We’re rounded up the best things to see and do this month, from disability-friendly museum visits to navigating the post-grad years of design.
