For a change of scenery myself, Luke, Becca and Matt decided upon ourselves to go to London for the day to see some sights and sounds. I had a fantastic day, we ended up going to the Design Museum near the Thames where we saw some architecture and product design by Braun and of course stopping by the gift shop. I found the exhibit really interesting in particular the spacial design and use of labeling in exhibition space and such which I have been of keen interest lately. From there we plodded on to have some dinner, at this point of course we had spent nearly six hours on the coach ride there and had wandered around the Design Museum for over an hour. The headed down to the Tate Modern which was awesome because I had never seen it, looking at the exhibits which were needless to say 'interesting', basically it involved lots of Andy Warhol, pretentious art thinking and 18+ screened areas, and of course spending money in the gift shop again.
From there we also had a look at the London Graphic Design Centre, which is fantastic for every graphic designers needs, Covent Garden, Kidrobot store, Hamleys Toy store and after a very tiring day we had to stop at platform 9 3/4 before we left. An amazing day indeed, to which every opportunity was taken to visit a gift shop.
