London’s Coningsby Gallery hosts an exhibition of illustrations curated by Design Week art director Ivan Cottrell next week, to celebrate the magazine’s 20th birthday. The illustrations have all featured on Design Week’s 1000 covers of the past 20 years and represent some of the best illustrations commissioned, says Cottrell. ‘This is a good way of measuring how styles have changed across the years,’ he explains. The exhibition runs at 30 Tottenham Street, W1, from Wednesday 4 October to Friday 6 October, open from 10am to 6pm.
