M5, Great minimalist booklet cover.
A fantastic publication design piece produced by Eunie Yip at H55 Studio in Singapore. This playful piece is informative and visual compelling with its great use of contrast in typography and imagery.
“Rom 13” (Room 13) is a book portraying both celebrities and former criminals, who tell a story about one important choice that changed their lives. The book is a collaboration between the Norwegian Red Cross and The Thief, a brand new hotel situated at Tjuvholmen. The aria where the hotel is situated was a place where criminals and prostitutes were hanged.
All photos are taken by Marcel Leliënhof in the same small hotel room of 30 square meters. Photographs for the book were also exhibited at an old harbour warehouse, Skur 13 (shed 13). Money from sales of the book and the exhibition will go directly to an organisation within the Red Cross which helps former criminals back in to everyday life. Many thanks to project manager at The Thief, Siri Løining, for helping to realize the project. (not ours)
Street Surplus is an online surplus store for the fashion conscious. The pallet and visual styling is playfully sophisticated, with a sharp black logotype appearing on a range of pastels, with applications including stationery, packaging, swing tags, print ads, and of course – online. Designed by Maythorpe.
Studio Constantine wanted our own printed materials to demonstrate the best-case impact achieved by intelligent and strategic use of a two colour production process on both premium and commodity stocks.
By using our visual mnemonics of geometry and colour, beyond the normal containment of a marque or icon and type lockup, they defined the aesthetic and layout of each piece as a whole. The result; a breadth of organic brand expressions. (not ours)
‘Trans’ is a Latin noun or prefix, meaning ‘across’, or ‘beyond’. Designed for a translator and writer for the arts, these cards reflect the process of the vocation and personality of their owner. Published articles by the writer were taken and turned into handmade paper, imbuing the essence of his craft into his identity. Contact details were then hand-printed onto each individual card using a transfer marker. Just as a translator’s role is that of bridging language boundaries, this process of transference from one medium to another is reiterated in how each card is made. Every card is handmade, and therefore beautifully idiosyncratic. Designed by Singapore based design studio, Foreign Policy.
