Pentagram partner Domenic Lippa and designer Lucy Groom worked with Emily Johnson from 1882Ltd to produce a set of campaign crockery. As a means of subverting the twee messages messages that commonly adorn tablewear, the Protest Plates adopted the aggressive typography found on protest placards and the avant-garde approach to demonstration. Each of the eight plates are influenced by a particular statement or quote that relate to food in some way, and are designed to be deliberately reactionary, disordered and unique.

The plates are on display as part of the 1882Ltd Sand and Clay Exhibition at the London Design Festival.

David A. Smith is a traditional sign-writer/designer specialising in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. David recently produced a wonderful turn-of-the-century, trade-card styled album cover for popular American singer/songwriter John Mayer.

This is such an astounding piece of work. The level of craftsmanship and detail that went into this album is impossible for me to wrap my head around. This is an album I may just have to buy in order to keep this little piece of history.
