Project developed while at Barnbrook
Disobedient Objects was an exhibition that examined the powerful role of objects in movements for social change, curated by Catherine Flood and Gavin Grindon. We developed a holistic design language that applied to the exhibition identity, print and digital marketing campaign, exhibition catalogue, exhibition graphics and accompanying print collateral.
The identity is built around transforming everyday objects into weapons of social change. The marketing material, exhibition graphics and accompanying publication became a call for action in and of themselves. A series of illustrated how-to guides were developed and made available online and at the exhibition, allowing visitors to create their own disobedient objects.
The exhibition was one of the most well attended exhibition in the history of the V&A, with 417,000 visitors.
