The Nest is behind the design for the British Library’s new exhibition, The Silk Road: Trade, Travel, War & Faith. The group created the identity, information materials and exhibition layout, basing the colours of the design on the pigments used to dye silks. ‘The main focus was on bringing out the stories of everyday life and human experiences through a series of objects,’ says Andy Smith, senior designer at The Nest, who was creative lead on the project. The exhibition, which is the largest in the library’s history in terms of the number of objects on show, runs from 7-12 May.
