Design Event 2011 presents Odd Collection, an exhibition of new print work by Nous Vous
Back for the seventh consecutive year, Design Event 2011, takes place across various venues in the North East of England, with a rich line up of the best design talent from the north of England.
This year’s theme is Happiness and the event opens with Design Event MART, a curated selling exhibition at The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art (Friday 14 – Sunday 16 Oct), championing over 30 design companies from the North.
An exciting new initiative this year will be Design Event Presents, whereby Design Event have selected eight designers based in the North and commissioned them to each create an exclusive product for Design Event. These limited pieces will include lighting, jewellery, soft furnishings, and print – and will be available to purchase at Design Event MART.
One of the participating designers for this year Design Event Presents is Nous Vous, who will be presenting Odd Collection, the products commissioned specially for 2011 ‘Design Event Presents’.
It is part of an ongoing series of simple, direct graphic prints based on found philosophies, positive thinking, creative processes, everyday experiences and the collaborative nature of Nous Vous’ practice.
Nous Vous is Nicolas Burrows, Jay Cover and William Edmonds, who have been working together since 2006 on commercial design projects, workshops, installations and curatorial projects.
Image making is the central of their work, whether it be though an illustration project or a piece of design. With a bold, graphic visual language suited to a range of applications, Nous Vous always attempt to imbue their work with a sense of positivity.
