Olly Gibbs a graduate from the BA in Illustration and Visual Media at the London College of Communication (LCC) has been commissioned to create the visual identity for a new exhibition, Our Londinium 2012, opening at the Museum of London on 22 June 2012.
The exhibition which will launch in time for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games explores the parallels between Roman London and the today’s modern capital. It is the largest update to the Museum’s Roman gallery since it opened in 1994.
Gibbs was appointed by exhibition curators, the Museum of London’s youth panel, Junction, to create a series of four illustrations of modern and Roman objects in his ‘doodle’ style. Gibbs says, “This is a great development of my work and has the iconic look of my trademark illustrations.”
Graduating from LCC in 2011, Gibbs’ illustrations exhibited at the College’s Summer Show have been featured in Creative Review and his work has been recognised in Computer Arts Magazine for “…its diversity and complimentary balance of illustration and graphic design”.
Our Londinium 2012 is free and runs from 22 June until 2014. See further details on the Museum of London website.
