Visitors to London’s Design Museum this weekend were treated to a new exhibition celebrating the design behind BBC Studio’s Hey Duggee.
The Designing Duggee exhibition opened 25-28 October, delving into the design story behind the hit pre-school animation. Visitors could discover how Studio AKA's Grant Orchard, the series' creator, made the characters and find out what makes each episode interesting and appealing to the audience.
Laura Connor, Global Brand Manager, Children’s, BBC Studios, says: “We’re thrilled to be working with the Design Museum on such a fun, exciting and unique exhibition.
“Hey Duggee has become a much-loved brand and this fantastic collaboration will allow fans both little and big to explore the design, animation and production process behind Duggee and the squirrels.”
The free exhibition will return to the Design Museum between Saturday 28 December and Monday 6 January. The exhibit will reopen alongside a new workshop experience, the Design Workshop with Hey Duggee, which will encourage children to get creative and earn their Design Badge.
Grant Orchard adds: “As a child I used to go to the Commonwealth Museum and be inspired by what I saw there, so it’s such an honour to have my early sketches, designs and concepts on display at what has now become the Design Museum.
“The exhibition offers our creative fans a chance to explore the design secrets behind Hey Duggee’s success, and I hope that it will inspire children to pick up a pencil and get sketching too.”
