I’ve been drooling over this Flickr set featuring a bunch of photos of the gorgeous Barbican Identity Guidelines book designed by North. Well done.
Some posted a link to the downloadable PDF of the book. Thanks!
glad to see you posting my submission.
Oh man I totally forgot that you sent that in. It’s been a while.
no problem, keep posting good stuff.
Wow, this is really impressive stuff. I wish we got brand guidelines like this through from clients 🙁
The PDF version is available for free download:
seen and held a copy of this book
Wow, what a nice looking book!
As the person who commissioned this book (I am Head of Marketing for the Barbican) I am glad you like our brand and the guidelines book.
North did a fantastic job.
I am currently using this brand book at work and it never fails to get me hyped up, I can never get enough of beautiful fat futura. North are tooooo good, the barbican identity as a whole is definitely right up there in my favorite brands.
Gorgeous. Would love to get my hands on a copy.
I am lucky enough to have a copy myself. North do identities beautifully. The production of this is great, love the stark black and white and then the colour examples at the back. It is a shame most companies seem to be opting for PDF versions of guidelines rather than print ones, although I do understand that they are more practical as they can be updated and cost less to produce.
Great post. And thanks for the download. What a great piece of work.
Use of Futura reminds me of 8vo’s identity for the Stedelijk.
Ooops, my memory fails me, it was for Boymans – van Beuningen museum .
Good stuff anyway.
The stock is really nice too. Just a lovely book
well, someone owns ‘grid systems’. highly derivative, but lovely nonetheless.
the layout is magnificent!
question, what’s the name of the paper i’am seeing?
