Exploring Liveable/Loveable cities for 2019, we developed a festival that took place in the underused retail spaces inside the Keiller Centre in Dundee City Centre. The focus was on an accessible and 'always on' festival where people could turn up, get hands on and explore design and the design process through a series of playful experiments.
The Keiller Centre built in the 1970s on the site of an old jam and confectionary factory in the heart of Dundee City Centre.
Created with designer Tommy Perman and drawing influence from the old confectionary wrappers, this typeface can change shape and style using sliders and was central to the whole festival concept.
A custom control panel was built to allow visitors to create their own hypothetical city brand for Dundee with infinite combinations using the variable font.
Four interconnected stories set in the not too distant future looking at how life might change and question what we take for granted. Written by Valerie Mullen.
