LADYBIRD BOOKS REIMAGINED INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION

LADYBIRD BOOKS / PENGUIN PUBLICATIONS​ / LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL

BRIEF

Create an exhibition piece showcasing the legacy of the Ladybird Books publications to celebrate the 100 years of Ladybird books. 

EXECUTION

The Ladybird Web – an interactive game that connects Ladybird book imagery with contemporary and comparative visuals.  Ladybird is an archive of anything and everything. It is an 'old search engine', almost like an 'Analog Google'. Elaborating on this idea, the project creates a web of colourful strings connecting ideas together from the past to the present and the future and pays homage to the informative nature of the books.

The project won the 'Best Interactive Installation' Prize for Ladybirds Publications '100 Years of Ladybird' competition  and was exhibited as a part of the London Design Festival 2015.

CREDITS

The project was created in collaboration with Saachi Mehta and Chandr Chandrvirochana at the London College of Communication, UAL in 2015.
