Editorial Design

Rail Road is an exceptional project designed by Pacifica. The book is the print documentary of a film about the Portuguese surfer Nic von Rupp, directed by Gustavo Imigrante. Remarkably they have managed to create a physical piece that not only serves as a companion to the film but works as a compelling standalone book.

 

Revolt

Paul Belford Ltd

Paul Belford Ltd has created a new book ‘Revolt’. An instruction manual for any business seeking to do more with their brand. For any charity seeking to do more with their budget. Or any individual seeking to do more with their life. The book is beautifully designed with an exceptionally clever spine.

D&AD’s 2017 Annual

Studio Sutherl&

Studio Sutherl&’s design for the 2017 D&AD Annual cleverly reinstates the Annual as the Design Bible needed in everybody’s lives. Simple covers and multiple ribbons, which the reader can use to bookmark projects they admire, keeps the design both elegant and functional. Copy, written by Nick Asbury, repeatedly uses ampersands (in reference to the & in D&AD) to give the Annual an additional element of personality and ownability.

The Barnes Foundation contains one of the most significant holdings of Matisse in the world. This definitive three-volume catalogue of the artist at the museum is an utterly wonderful piece of editorial design by Abbott Miller & Kim Walker at Pentagram. It is bold and surprising and yet pitch-perfect. It’s one of the most beautiful – and most considered – book projects I’ve seen in recent years.
