BBC Studios is partnering with the Design Museum to celebrate the creativity behind CBeebies’ award-winning series Hey Duggee through a special exhibition called Designing Hey Duggee opening this October half-term.
Running from the 25-28 October, the exhibit is a chance for fans to dive into the colourful world of Hey Duggee, from never-before-seen early sketches of the series initially titled Chop Chop!, to the final design and brand.
The showcase also treat visitors to an exclusive look inside the design, animation and production process of the series creator, Studio AKA and its Creative Director, Grant Orchard.
“As a child I used to go to the Commonwealth Institute and be inspired by what I saw there,” says Grant. “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!”
Hey Duggee is a modern design classic that has captivated fans of all ages with its eye-popping graphics, bright colours and charismatic characters. This exhibition is a chance to see how the world was brought to life with episodes, clips and insights into key features of the show such as the famous badges.
