catalog for the cambridge-based fine artist, thomas newbolt
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.

open studio posters
thomas & clare newbolt wanted us to create posters for their open studios. now that two have been made and they illustrate a different more minimal side of what we're capable of, we thought they were worth posting here.

site for the cambridge-based artist thomas newbolt.
thomas called with some ideas for a site that offered us the opportunity to produce something that would showcase his life's work beyond any typical website limitations. for his online debut he said he didn't care for slow connections or primitive computer technology; the people he wanted to see his work wouldn't have them anyway & they had to be impressed.
