26 members of 26 were paired with 26 new designers during the 2014 London Design Festival and asked to write 100 words in response to one design. An illustrator then responded to their words by creating an illustration for each piece.
The result was 26 Designs. A remarkable range of writing from alliteration to short stories, interviews to poems and personal reflections to monologues. There’s even a nagauta: a Japanese ‘long song’ poem.
The pieces were published in the very first issue of Fiera Magazine, brainchild of 26 member Katie Treggiden and magCulture Studio’s Jeremy Leslie.
