Dezeen broke the three biggest stories of the London Design Festival this week: the news that graphic designer Peter Saville won the London Design Medal and is working on a new visual identity for Kanye West; and the announcement that the V&A museum has acquired the first 3D-printed gun. Read on for more of this week's best bits...
Saville spoke about collaborating with the rapper and his graphic design work in the 1980s at Global Design Forum, part of this week's London Design Festival. We reported both stories live from the forum.
Besides putting the world's first 3D-printed gun on show - a story that Dezeen published before anyone else - the V&A also hosted an installation of thousands of paper windmills and a spectacular chandelier of coloured glass spheres.
