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 (https://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.
