18 June 2013 — Big Studio Clear-out



We are having a big studio clear-out and are organising all the work samples from the past 15 years. Impressive how much work there is just for Belmacz alone all laid out on the floor.

11 June 2013 — Crowd Talk



Romilly was invited to talk about our position on internships at the Crowd Talks event that took place at the The Book Club. Thanks to everyone who came. We hope it was interesting.

08 June 2013 — 20PlusX Summer School



Holger will be talking on 20th of June at the 20PlusX Summer School in Munich, Germany. If you are in the area come along. He will also do a 3 day workshop. The results will be exhibited on the 23rd of June.

Correction: I just heard from the organizers that the date of the event has been changed to the 24–27 of October. So no Bavarian beer and sausages at this time.

08 June 2013 — Job Update

We received a lot of applications for the job we have at our studio. We are looking through all of them now but its taking us a bit longer than expected and on top of that Romilly's computer with all the applications on there just died (don't worry, we are getting it fixed and none of the data will be lost). If you applied for the job please be patient we will contact you soon if we like to meet you.

03 June 2013 — Field Trip



Holger's German students came over to London for a one week typographic research trip. We looked at public lettering mostly in pubs, visited the East End markets, shops and restaurants. We also visited St. Brides Library and Christian Küsters showed us the new gigantic Central Saint Martins building. We met with great designers such as the fantastic Morag Myerscough, traditional signwriter Peter Hardwicke, Alex Bettler from Modern Activity, big scale type designers Dalton Maag, typography legends Phil Baines and Catherine Dixon, our friends from Julia, and letterpress monster Ian Gabb. A good week with some serious typographic milage and a lot of walking.

May – Join a Winning Team!



Well, that rare event which only occurs once in a million years is happening again: we actually have a real job to offer, properly paid, no internship, serious responsibility. However, we will be very, very, very picky. (The position has now been filled.)

09 May 2013 – Student Visit



Today a group of students from the University of Würzburg in Germany visited the studio.

05 May 2013 — Lock Studios



We recently designed the identity and website for Lock Studios, a new photographic studio situated on Regents Canal. The place is still a building site but our work is pretty much done. We just need to update the images on the website once it is up and running.

04 May 2013 — Work in Progress



We are currently working on the identity and website for Loop.pH, a design studio that does very interesting artistic and architectural installations inspired by science and nature.

28 May 2013 — Tess Copycat



We always find it to a certain extent, amusing when other designers copy our work. Obviously there is a certain degree of influence and inspiration involved in all design work but some things just go a step too far. See the original here and the copy here.

The world has become a very crowded place nowadays, design is everywhere. It becomes a duty for every good designer to make sure his work is original. A good way of doing that is NOT to look at any design books or blogs WHILE you are working on something but AFTERWARDS just to make sure nobody accidentally had the same idea (if so start from scratch). However some people seem to do it the other way round.
