Design + English: Kidbrooke School

Heart on sleeve… that’s the project Lydia designed with Kidbrooke School’s English faculty to engage a bunch of year 9s with the poetry syllabus.

Over its two-day arts festival, Kidbrooke School brought in artists from a range of disciplines to work with its academic faculties. Lydia met the teachers, read the poems and collaborated with the faculty to design a project that would work as a lesson plan. Heart on Sleeve took the emotion of a poem and put it on a T-shirt.To introduce the project, Lydia roved around Shoreditch and Brick Lane to put together a photo essay showing expressive typography in action, in the streets.
