Debris of Heygate

Like this design? You can purchase the print in Daniel's online shop

Designer Daniel Clarke says that this project was based on 'The Heygate Estate' in Elephant and Castle. At the time only 7 people
were still living in the entire estate which once housed 3000 people. He got talking to the remaining habitants of the estate to get an idea of what the situation was and how it actually used to be on the estate.

Through the media the Heygate was described as ‘a mugger’s paradise’, but after talking to around 30 of the estates ex and current tenants he realised it wasn’t like this at all. You can purchase this print in Daniel's shop.
