Below another sky Book



This is Below another sky, the book that I have been designing for the British Council. Below another sky is a book that documents a set of international residencies, which resulted in a collection of prints by twenty artists, including prints by Turner Prize nominees Jim Lambie, David Shrigley, and Janice Kerbel. Curated by Alexia Holt, on behalf of the Scottish Print Network, the project was supported by Creative Scotland and was included in the Glasgow 2014 programme coinciding with the Commonwealth Games. Below another sky was exhibited across Scotland in 2014-15 and the prints have now been acquired by the British Council Collection and will become part of the British Council’s international touring exhibition programme.

The book is bound with a Rexel metal fastener that will allow translations and other local information to be inserted as the exhibition tours the world. It was printed by Allander, Edinburgh, on Oxygen Offset 100% Recycled paper.

Press Passing at Allander, Edinburgh



I went to Allander in Portobello to press pass Below another sky, the book that I have been designing for the British Council. Below another sky is a book that documents a set of international residencies, which resulted in a collection of prints by twenty artists, including prints by Turner Prize nominees Jim Lambie, David Shrigley, and Janice Kerbel. Curated by Alexia Holt, on behalf of the Scottish Print Network, the project was supported by Creative Scotland and was included in the Glasgow 2014 programme coinciding with the Commonwealth Games. Below another sky was exhibited across Scotland in 2014-15 and the prints have now been acquired by the British Council Collection and will become part of the British Council’s international touring exhibition programme.

As always, everyone at Allander was extremely helpful and, after a few adjustments, I am very happy with the quality of printing of images and text. The book will have an interesting binding that will allow translations and other local information to be inserted as the exhibition tours the world; the printers are as excited as I am to see the end result, which should appear in the middle of next week.

Selected 2015 Logo



This is the logo that I designed for Selected 2015, Dovecot's selling exhibition of craft and design. Now in its third year, Selected 2015 brings together makers selected by an industry panel. Jewellery, silversmithing, ceramics, glass, textiles and furniture are all represented by talented craftspeople with Scottish connections. The logo was used on a leaflet – which also doubled as an invitation – as well as banners and posters, which I also designed. The logo appeared in the gallery, reversed out of metallic bronze paint, which was hand-brushed on to the wall for a tactile craft feel.

Alongside Selected 2015, + Dovecot Selects showcases the work of three established studios: Timorous Beasties, Dashing Tweeds and Method Studio, who will present signature pieces from their collections.

Selected 2015 runs at Dovecot Gallery from 21 November until 23 December 2015.
