BASKERVILLE SOCIEY EVENT
Museum of Branding + God's Own Junkyard, London | 6 June 2015 | 1200-1830
The Museum of Brands is a treasure trove of retro design and dormant memories, from the naive charm of the Victorian era to the sophistication of today’s design-savvy companies. Featuring over 12,000 original items from the Robert Opie Collection, the museum reveals the history of consumer culture and typographic excellence. Discover how well-loved brands evolved through their creative use of packaging and advertising - and how we evolved with them. After breaking for lunch, we then head across the city to Walthamstow to Electrosigns and God’s Own Junkyard. Electro Signs have been a leading company in sign design and installation for over fifty years and now have such an amazing collection of new and salvages neon signs and architectural advertising that they have opened a gallery called God’s Own Junkyard. It regularly features in photo, TV and film shoots.
Meet at the Museum at noon. Approximate timings: Museum of Brands 12pm - 2pm; Lunch 2pm - 3.30pm; God’s Own Junkyard 430pm - 6pm. God’s Own Junkyard remains open until 9pm
