One of my personal favourite moments of any DesignerCon or Five Points, or any convention for that matter, is actually not at the convention itself but before the convention even starts. When the artist is announced who will be working on the designing the badges for the convention! We have a selection of our DCon badges from previous years hanging off the wall at TTC HQ. We spent the weekend trying to collect (cos that’s what we do, innit) the full range of badges. From VIP to Weekend to Saturday to Sunday etc. We want them all…
Now with DesignerCon London on the horizon (20-22nd August), we have been treated to the information that we crave! At DesignerCon London 2021, the artist that will be designing the VIP and Weekend badges is…..
Thumbs, for those that don’t know his work, is a pop culture artist that moulds multiple characters and influences into some of the most amazing art work we have seen. Recently taking The Simpsons and giving them the Blink 182 treatment in a sold out print/tee/sticker combination (see below). Thumbs also recently released & sold out of the Self-loathing Cats figure (read HERE).
Knowing Thumbs, his design work for DesignerCon London is going to be absolute killer. We CANNOT F’N WAIT!! Roll on August 20th! Check out some of Thumbs work below…
