When I was working in Oxford Street recently I randomly discovered a pop-up-shop which had on display a variety of collectable items designed and carefully handcrafted by the second year graphic design students at Central St Martins. Here’s one piece I purchased because I liked the concept. It’s a pack of Marlboro cigarettes which are much more healthy than a regular pack because they’re so short.
The project was called 1/12 because the students were requested to make 12 items to investigate manufacture as part of the design process. Some of the other items were a bottle off pills – each one contained a positive statement, champaign flutes cast in concrete, some illustrated tattoo transfers and some illustrated picture books which I think were screen printed.
