Description

http://www.twohundredby200.co.uk/200-magazine/ In the twohundredby200 design studio we have all kinds of weird and wonderful stuff kicking about our space. We are often asked by visitors about various things they spot lurking in corners or invading floor space so we decided to let everyone have a peek at some of our favourite pieces. The twohundredby200 design studio is often asked to produce artwork in the iconic soviet military style very much along the lines that street artists Shepard Fairey creates with his large wall murals. When we were first asked to create a piece of work in a style we have not used before, we have to do some research and one of the most useful places we have found is ebay. The shopping portal led us to a wealth of soviet designed badges. The badges would not win top marks for production quality as the materials and processes used are usually very poor but in terms of a source of design inspiration they win. The team have collected hundreds of these little pieces of art and they have been a feature of our studio for a number of years. We have been lucky enough to have had a large number donated to our collection by clients, friends and family alike making it a great resource for design. Sean talks us through a small selection of the badges in the collection and talks about how the studio uses them and what the ultimate plan is for the collection is in 2016.
