Invesco Perpetual Book by Browns


Creative consultancy Browns was kind enough to send me photos of their latest project: a limited edition book for Invesco Perpetual featuring beautiful photos by Magnum photographer Donovan Wylie. I’m a big fan of photos spanning across two pages, it really enhances the experience, especially when the images are this stunning. The vertical lines is also a nice touch, they reveal the underlying grid.

Here’s what Browns had to say about the book:

Working closely with photographer Donovan Wylie/Magnum, Browns have produced and designed a new limited edition book for Invesco Perpetual.

The resulting imagery from the shoot becomes part of Invesco’s image library and is used across all of their communications collateral.

This iconic flat top mountain was used by Browns when redesigning the Invesco global Identity in 2008.

I posted all of the high-res images of the book on Flickr.

Daily Book Graphics


Daily Book Graphics is a year-long project by Julian Montague where each day he posts, on his blog and his Flickr page, a graphic element from a book that he’s purchased. He started on February 21, 2009 and plans to post something new each day until February 21, 2010. The collection is incredible and it includes a ton of classic book graphics that are designed in the International Typographic Style. An excellent resource for any designer.

Unit Editions


This is a little late but better late then never right?

The brilliant Tony Brook (Spin) and Adrian Shaughnessy (ShaughnessyWorks) have started Unit Editions, a new publishing venture that produces high-quality, affordable books on graphic design and visual culture. I’ve been waiting for something like this for a long time and it’s refreshing to see that it’s being manned by two highly respects and talented people. Their attention to print quality and design is superb and it’s very much apparent in their first release, Studio Culture.

Studio Culture, designed by Spin, focuses on the inner workings of 28 leading graphic design studios and acts as a guide to creating, maintaining and growing a studio culture. It’s not only a informative guide, Studio Culture is also a work of art in my opinion. That’s what makes Unit Editions so unique.

I’m super excited for their next release. Actually, a subscription service would be awesome. Just auto-bill me and send me the book. No matter what it’s about, I know it will be gorgeous and informative.
