Morning Yellowtracers! Welcome to our London Design Festival extravaganza. This week we will be bringing you our round up of the finest LDF had to offer, leaving no stone unturned, no press release unread, and no link unclicked. It will be just like we went there together. Ahhhh…

Now in it’s 11th year, LDF is an annual event held to celebrate and promote London as a premier design destination, and a gateway to the international creative community. This year the festival took place between 13th to 21st September 2014, encompassing a whole myriad of events and venues. This week we will cover our favourite product releases, experimental design, events, installations, pop-ups and all that jazz. In other words – we’ve got you covered. Let’s do this!
