Maggi Hambling: Walls of Water

We've just designed a catalogue & invite showing works from Maggi Hambling's exhibition "Walls of Water: The Monotypes", showing at Marlborough Fine Art, London. The exhibition of monotypes coincides with the National Gallery's full-colour exhibition "Walls of Water", which you can see here. You can find out more about Marlborough's exhibition here.


Catherine Goodman at the National Portrait Gallery

This month sees the opening of a five month long exhibition of Catherine Goodman’s incredible portraiture, held at the National Portrait Gallery in London. The show celebrates 25 years of the BP Portrait Award, which Catherine won in 2002.


Our accompanying catalogue can be found in the National Portrait Gallery gift shop. Alongside each of the works there are comments on the portrait from friends and acquaintances of each sitter, providing us with a fascinating insight into the people behind the paintings.

Centrica CR Report 2013

We’ve just finished Centrica’s Corporate Responsibility Report for 2013. This is the third year running that we’ve had the pleasure of working with the CR team to produce their report. Features such as newly-styled ‘At a glance’ pages and more in-depth infographics inform and guide the user throughout the report - we’re really pleased with the result! Check out the whole report here, on Centrica’s website.



Bonaventura is a new company set up to promote, distribute and sell high end and bespoke porcelain ware. The brief was to develop an identity with a mix of traditional and contemporary. Our typographic approach is a clean and timeless execution that the client was very pleased with.



We've just completed another catalogue & invite for Marlborough Fine Art, who are working in conjunction with Galerie Huit in Hong Kong to stage an exhibition called 'Bridging'. The show features four female artists who reside in Britain and China - Paula Rego, Maggi Hambling, Xiang Jing and Yan Ping, thus bridging the international gap. Both our catalogue and invite were typeset with both English and Chinese side-by-side.
