During the Olympics…

Posted in Exhibitions, Olympic Logo a Day project, Random Project, Sarah Hyndman, With Relish by Type Tasting on August 20, 2012

Recent months have been pretty busy with my focus on a couple of Olympics inspired projects during what has been such an exciting time to be living and working in London.

Random Project 2012
The Random Project 2012 is an undertaking I organise and curate which is encouraging mass creativity. It is open to everybody to participate in and as the year unfolds it is creating a documentary of 2012.

The summer exhibition was timed to coincide with the Olympic Games as a way everybody could join in and celebrate. This took place over two weeks at Rich Mix in East London and has had such a great response. The project will continue to the end of 2012 when the collection will be shown as a timeline of the year.

Olympic Logo a Day
This was a small, personal project of mine that took the blog and twittersphere by storm. In its last month the Olympic Logo a Day blog received nearly 35,000 views from over 120 countries. It gained international coverage and the surprise highlights were my being filmed by the BBC World Service and interviewed by the New York Times.

The Olympic Logo a Day blog has been written about in the New York Times, Blueprint magazine, Design Week, The Drum, Follow the Colours Brazil, Logo Design Love, Londonist, Creative Boom, Eye magazine, Dezeen, Handpicked London, Everything London, GQ, Jessica Ennis’ official website, Telegraph, Treehugger and the ‘alternative Olympic posters’ became the ‘top news story’ on Twitter in the week they were released…

More ideas are in the pipeline, I’ll keep you posted.
