Brandon Bird Design consulted with the TEDx Cambridge team to produce a successful event at Harvard University on November 19, 2011. We provided art direction, event planning, design, and installation services for this special one-day event. Highlights included name badges, hand-painted stage banners, and laser-cut environmental graphics (courtesy of danger!awesome).

TEDx Cambridge is a special, one-day event featuring talks and demonstrations by the region’s leading thinkers and doers that explores the mind, challenges the body, questions the relationship between nature and nurture, and examines the different understandings of the good life. So inspirational it makes your head spin and your body thrive.

In collaboration with the good folks at Alphabet Arm and Matt Budelman. All photos by Justin Ide.



The Lab @ Harvard kicked off its debut year as a curricular program of the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences with its annual Fall Exhibition of works-in-progress on September 23rd, 2011. The Lab is an experiential education and exhibition program where Harvard students, in collaboration with students, artists, designers, and scientists from around the world, dream up projects with global social impact at frontiers of science.

Scope of work included event / exhibit concept, design, and installation.


The Harvard University Graduate School of Design and the Harvard Art Museums have launched an unprecedented three-part exhibition that addresses the converging domains of contemporary art and design practice. Entitled The Divine Comedy, this exhibition is comprised of major installations by internationally acclaimed artists Olafur Eliasson, Tomás Saraceno, and Ai Weiwei, and is on display March 21 through May 17, 2011, at the Graduate School of Design, the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, and the Northwest Science Building.

Brandon Bird Design was responsible for the the Ai Weiwei installation at the Harvard University Northwest Science Building. Weiwei’s installation, Untitled (2011), memorializes the thousands of schoolchildren who died as a result of the major earthquake in China’s Sichuan Province in May 2008. A site-specific work of 5,335 identical school backpacks represents the exact number of children who died during the earthquake and in the subsequent collapses of poorly constructed school buildings.
