By Design is a performance-centred art experience where graphic design, media art and performance meet in playful collaboration. Conceived and directed by CAKE, graphic design artists Vanessa Ban and Amber Vittoria, and media artist Zach Lieberman are invited to create new pieces in collaboration with live performers.

Experience the intersection of art, design and performance digitally in this screening of By Design, which was first staged at the Esplanade Theatre Studio in Apr 2021.
