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. Click here for a glimpse of the postcard wall at Rich Mix.

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.


Major Random exhibition to be at Rich Mix

Posted in Exhibitions, Random Project, Sarah Hyndman by Type Tasting on May 17, 2012

I am delighted to announce that the major Random Project 2012 Exhibition will take place at Rich Mix in London from 2nd – 19th August.

Rich Mix is located in an old garment factory in the heart of vibrant Shoreditch and close to the City and Olympic site. The venue is an art gallery, performance space and cinema with an ongoing programme of exciting events and activities.

The exhibition will open as part of First Thursdays, where the galleries and museums of east London open their doors late for a chance to see amazing art, culture and events after hours. The exhibition will be a growing exhibition as more postcards are added to fill the entire gallery space. We will be running postcard making sessions and events – please check our website nearer the time for details.

Art as Life

Bauhaus: Art as Life
3 May 2012 – 12 August ’12
Barbican Art Gallery

A new exhibition opens at the Barbican today, and the Olympic Logo a Day site pays homage in its own way. The ideas and teachings of the Bauhaus school and designers have influenced us all greatly, and continue to do so – their ideas about form and function, the experimental teaching methods, the architecture and living spaces.

The biggest Bauhaus exhibition in the UK in over 40 years presents the modern world’s most famous art school. From expressionist beginnings to a pioneering model uniting art and technology, this London exhibition presents the Bauhaus’ utopian vision to change society in the aftermath of the First World War.
