Phase One: Diversity
As we take a celebratory approach to migration and the doves of cultural influences that make up moder Britain, an eclectic combination of styles fuses with an evocative 70’s aesthetic: bold typographical styles in vivid shades are reminiscent of retro sign writing, combined with textile designs and decorative motifs from a global library of inspiration. Phase Two: Liberty
Phase two, Liberty, follows a trend for nostalgia and etiquette, looking at the traditional pursuits inherent to the history of British leisure time. Inspired by May Day on the river Thames, picnics in the city parks and genteel activities, such as croquet and bowls, a quintessentially British aesthetic prevails with oversize floral prints, refined tailoring, and graphics with a touch of eccentricity. Phase Three: Relay
Phase three, Relay, takes a look at the impact of the London Olympics, both aesthetically and as a lasting legacy to Great Britain. Ambitious regeneration projects and forward-thinking architectural feats will potentially have a positive effect on the nation long after the closing ceremony takes place. Influence taken from archival Olympic posters imbues a retrospective quality to the visuals of this phase, with blocky typography and oversized, simplified motifs featuring on minimal sporty separates.
