Dundee Design Festival commissioned designer and illustrator Louise Kirby to create a series of surface patterns that piece together the stories of contemporary Dundee design.

Each panel was hand screen printed and dispersed through the exhibition.

Drawing on one of the festival’s visual themes of the printing process, Kirby used a vibrant colour palette to make visual connections between Dundee’s seemingly disparate design practices. 
Some of the imagery included -  Kengo Kumas V&A Dundee, tools of jewellers, Frank Gehry Maggies Centre, eeGeo 3d mapping, Jack Ellis, fashion + textiles, designer tools, medical design and Hands of X and games design.  The design festival ran from 25th May - 28th May 2016.  www.dundeedesignfestival.com
