Canalside Press Essay Series
Design of new essay series of smaller, text based books for Canalside Press. The colours used were inspired by Sanzo Wada's A Dictionary of Color Combinations.
A collection of essays and work by the architect John Meunier. Most of the images available were quite small so a grain effect was used in order to allow full page images on the cover and chapter openers. The balance between serif headings and sans body text illustrates the architect’s approach to architecture, drawing from different influences. Available from Canalside Press.
The Shaw Agency
Website and identity for a new literary agency formed by Kate Shaw. Alverata was chosen as the typeface – a modern “literary” serif. For the website a typographic approach, using large quotes, compensated for lack of imagery. A limited colour palette was used to create uniformity over a range of supplied author photos and book covers.
Urban Photo Fest identity
Inspired by existing signage in Deptford, where the festival is based, the identity uses thick underlines, suggesting a physical support to the typography. Each year an image from the festival is chosen that demonstrates the theme, with a change of colour to refresh the brand.
