Studio DB works on post-riots We Love Brixton project

Studio DB has created a 3D installation as part of the We Love Brixton event, which aims to celebrate the south London area’s community spirit in the wake of the riots that hit English cities in August.

We Love Brixton, which will take place in Windrush Square this weekend, is being run by Binki Taylor, for whom Studio DB designed a cardboard Circus shop in Brixton Market last year (http://www.designweek.co.uk/studio-db-designs-cardboard-shop/3013290.article).

Studio DB is part of a creative team that has been working on the project, which includes film-maker Luke Forsythe, brand director Scott Leonard and illustrator Benjamin Wachenje.

Studio DB director Phil Dolman says the installation is a 3D expression of the We Love Brixton brand, and will serve as a backdrop for graffiti and pin-ups about what people love about the area.

He says, ‘I helped to develop the font for the brand because I was very keen that there be no curved lines.’

The installation will also serve as a focal point for a series of speeches, concerts and other events. It is 2.4m-high, 1.2m-wide and 20m long, made from Sterling board and took three days to construct.
