Wallpaper* Icons at Harrods

An icon series for Wallpaper* Magazine's 'Handmade 2013 Exhibition' at Harrods.

About the project

I was commissioned by Wallpaper* Magazine to create 86 icons for the Handmade 2013 exhibition with Jaguar at Harrods. The exhibition consists of crafted one-off designer items of furniture, fittings, fashion and more. I designed bespoke icon illustrations for each piece in the exhibition. The icons were displayed on the windows of Harrods in white vinyl, acting as a 'key' for referencing each item. The challenge was to create a consistent and minimalist style whilst expressing the unique features of the designers work.

The Result

The icons were displayed across 12 of the Harrods windows at Knightsbridge in October 2013. Additionally, a set of 'Blippar' icons (symbols which are readable from a mobile phone to show specific information) were created to add an interactive element to the exhibition. and the icons were also used on the Wallpaper website as rollovers and along side each piece.
