The Leeds Design Week launches on 20 June, showcasing furniture design, fine art and photography among others. The event will incorporate exhibitions, ‘Open Houses’, city tours and forums. Leeds Design Week is unrelated to Design Week the publication.
The visual identity combines the club’s “illustrious heritage” and “future glory” with an eye to digital platforms and more casual fans.
The week-long festival will also host speakers including interaction design expert Daljit Singh and representatives from Heatherwick Studio.
His installation for London Design Festival draws on a number of inspirations, from clubbing in the 1990s to fake Crimean villages.
