The annual celebration of all things design has taken the capital by storm this September. Make sure not to miss the last weekend before the festival closes its doors on Sunday.

Calling all Instagram fanatics and design gurus, don’t pass up the opportunity to experience London as you have never seen it before at the London Design Festival this weekend.

Having run for the last fifteen years, the festival takes place annually throughout the month of September, with hundreds of unique events across the capital intended to commemorate design in its broadest scope, from the local to the international.

A number of events around London are planned for this weekend, including Set in Stone at the Design Museum in High Street Kensington, Timorous Beasties Urban Jungle in Angel/Kings Cross, Under/Exposed in Brixton and Artefact Footwear, Futures in Soho.

There’s also the London Design Fair at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, a public trade event displaying the best of new design. This will include a special exhibition on US-created design, plant design within buildings, and a look at how different materials can be used to create effects within spaces.

For the full programme of upcoming design events this weekend see here.

Although the festival formally closes on Sunday, an event in Euston will be open until January 14 2018.

Can Graphic Design Save Your Life?’ is a free exhibition which aims to demonstrate the role of graphic design in communicating healthcare messages in order to persuade, to inform and to empower.

By highlighting the widespread and often subliminal nature of graphic design in shaping our environment, our health and our sense of self, the event draws on public and private collections around the world, featuring work from influential figures in graphic design from the 20th century, as well as from studios and individual designers working today.

The exhibition is curated by graphic designer Lucienne Roberts and design educator Rebecca Wright, founders of publishing house GraphicDesign&.
