I just received my copy of Bastardised by Bunch and what a gem it is. If you haven’t picked up a copy yet then what the hell are you waiting for? Some really great stuff in here. If you do have it and happen to turn to page 76 you’ll see my submission in all it’s glory. Honestly, it’s a real honor to be included with such talents as BB Saunders, Chris Hewitt, Craig Oldham, Darren Firth, David Corti, Michael Cina, Si Scott and many more.
You can see some more shots on my Flickr page.
Bastardised celebrates the global identity project born in 2007 out of Bunch’s need to re-brand. They approached designers and image-makers they admired and asked them to produce a “visual reaction” to their logo, sign it and return it. The resulting ‘Bunchisms’ were incorporated into their stationery with care taken to choose relevant themes for the applications.
This initiative attracted international artists, designers and illustrators which included Malcolm Garrett, Jonathan Ellery, Paul Davis, Marian Bantjes, Stefan Sagmeister, James Goggin, Carlos Segura, Build, Paul Insect, David Quay, Vince Frost, Si Scott and Julian Morey.
289 ‘Bunchisms’ were specially selected from 750 contributions and my submission was one of the designs selected for the book.
The limited edition 208 page hardback includes a foreword by cultural writer and author Liz Farrelly.
You can purchase a copy on November 1st from the Bunch store or Magma Books.
