Words in papers

Our work in print spans a wide range of scales and surfaces. From stationery and art catalogues to invitations and large wall information panels. Each piece has been carefully designed to obtain a harmonic combination between the graphical solution and the materials onto which they are applied. We aspire to produce beautiful, useful and attractive objects. You may find a selection below.

Art catalogues

Pasiones Contemporáneas

Contemporary Passions shows the works of over 50 artists, covering a period of over 45 years of the history of art, ranging from Pop, Modern and Conceptual arts to post-modern artistic expressions, with figurative and expressionist pieces.

El Greco to Goya

The origins of the Prado Museum lie in the collections accumulated over almost 300 years by the different kings of Spain. From Charles V to Ferdinand VII, these monarchs were some of the most dedicated patrons and collectors of European art.

Matthias Weischer

In his first individual exhibition in the Americas, Matthias Weischer presented his most recent prints and paintings. His work shows a multifaceted interplay of colour, light and forms whose multilayered compositions offer a festival of patterns, shapes and objects, all placed in artificial settings. The virtuous artworks engage both the eyes as well as the mind.

Open House

A catalogue, a website, signage and invitations for a contemporary art exhibition held at the Argentine Ambassador’s residence in London, to coincide with the capital city’s architectural event called Open House London.

Double Take

Catalogue for the exhibition Double Take, organised and featuring work by recent graduates of the Royal College of Art, London.

Encounters

To celebrate the collection’s homecoming, the Museo de Arte de Ponce reopened with Encounters: Space, Time, and Experience, an exhibition designed to emphasize the collection’s diversity. With a greatly expanded and improved home for the museum’s 4,500 objects, it is now able to exhibit twice as many works as before. The 820 works of art on view span 3,000 years and come from Europe, the Americas, and Africa—three cultures that have shaped Puerto Rico’s heritage. Rather than presenting the collection in a traditional manner (geographically, chronologically, or by medium), this exhibition is organized thematically, thereby hoping to reveal new relationships, stimulate conversation, and build bridges to understanding.

Posters

No Way Back?

This was later on folded onto an A4 page to function as the programme’s cover. The font used, which I call low-res, is my own striped version of the Engschrift DIN font. Stripped images or type is what you obtain when you set the printer in an economic mode to save ink or when it you almost have no ink left.

Magazines and Guides

World Business is a monthly business magazine published by Haymarket.
