_what
redesign of the new york-based film journal, filmmaker magazine.
_how
we pitched editor scott macaulay on the redesign of his longstanding, much respected, new york-based magazine and he said it was perfect timing. the forthcoming issue was to be his 100th issue, marking 25 years since he started the magazine with friends back in the early 90s. after some further discussion we discovered he shared a similar aesthetic interests to ours and soon the project was under way.

sharing a mutual admiration for each other's work we contacted our friend charlotte gosch in germany and asked her if she'd like to collaborate with us on the project. the whole magazine including the logo was redesigned over the space of about a month and a half. we hope the design speaks for itself as you move from page to page, but in short it represents an attempt to breathe new life into a word-heavy film journal and talk about the importance of the image in that context.

catalog for the cambridge-based fine artist, thomas newbolt
_how
the english painter thomas newbolt commissioned us to design a 100 page catalog of some of his best works to date. his gallery, piano-nobile, had proposed the idea of a catalog for his most recent show and this idea exploded into the book you see here now. a canvas-bound, rather experimental and intuitive affair, the book attempts to capture the nature of thomas's paintings not just through reproductions of the work, but via the accompanying essays, interviews and free-form designed layouts.

film poster for the feature film, the strange ones.
_how
the film's producer michael prall got in touch with us in need of a poster for the film's world premiere at SXSW film festival. talking to directors lauren wolkstein and christopher radcliff it was immediately clear we were going to make something good together. their references were amongst some of our favourite posters and this in turn pushed us to present some of our best ideas. the result is a poster that keeps on giving, particularly once you've seen the film.
