Neon’s ‘Silver Speaks’ branding work features in Design Week ‘Inspiration’ section.
Neon’s branding work for the Contemporary British Silversmiths initiative ‘Silver Speaks’ has been kindly featured in Design Week’s ‘Inspiration’ section, the day before the opening of the first exhibition at the V&A, forming part of a year’s programme of events and exhibition showcasing some of the most current work within the UK Silversmithing community.
‘Silver Speaks’ is year long series of events to be held around the United Kingdom (including the V&A and The Goldsmiths’ Centre) to celebrate the exceptional level of creativity and skill in British silversmithing today. The spotlight will shine on some of the most exciting artists and designers – exploring the diverse applications of the material, from the experimental to the traditional, the sculptural to the functional. It will showcase the remarkable uses of silver and how works can be commissioned to enhance contemporary living, architecture and fashion.
