Memories Book Preview


Memories team member Rishi Sodha has created a special edition of the Memories book. Using the stories and images we have in so far, he has assembled a prototype of Memories with an incredible faux leather embossed cover, and bound it by hand. Pushing his layout skills to the max and printing it on a luscious, pulpy paper stock, he’s created a marvellous object and shown just how awesome the images our artists have created will look in print.

Unfortunately, this wondrous creation won’t be available to buy, however we are moving on with the final version with the aim to make as much as we can for Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres. The prototype has given us loads of printing and layout ideas to hopefully apply in the on-sale version of the book.

3 Minutes The Book

3 Minutes is the second publication from non-profit organisation Designers Against Human Rights Abuse (DAHRA) and the second collaboration between DAHRA and Tibet Relief Fund.

The premise of the book is to show the full extent of the Tibetan conflict through 10 diverse and extremely powerful 3-minute interviews, each describing the 3 minutes that changed their lives. This idea is reflected in the covers of each booklet, which separately make beautiful abstract covers but together form to make a €˜”3″€™.

Contributors were asked to translate these 3 minute interviews into 16 printed page booklets using primarily typography. The result is a book made up of 10 beautifully designed booklets from some of the world’s best designers showcasing considered and stunning typography.

The book is available for £10 + p&p worldwide with all proceeds going to Tibet Relief Fund and being distributed by Subism

The contributors to this project are Bibliotheque, Brighten the Corners, Stefan Gandl (NeubauBerlin), Alex Haigh (Thinkdust / HypeforType), Nick Hard (Research Studios), Jeff Knowles (Research Studios), Abbott Miller (Pentagram), Si Scott, Paul Skerm, Un.titled

Glug – Subism

As part of the Subism team I helped organise the Subism Glug Networking events in Nottingham & London.

Glug #8 at Brownes Nottingham – Subism hosted a gallery & live drawing.

“Subism have put on a great party at the last two Glug events in Nottingham and London. As well as being pretty damn good at their art, they are also top people. They bring together loads of different styles of graffiti and illustration and will take over any canvas, wall or anything you put in front of them and come up with the goods. Definitely highly recommended!”
Gemma Ballinger, Development Manager @ Studio Output Nottingham

Glug #11 at The Queen of Hoxton – Subism arranged illustrators to work on the stairwell walls and upstairs on the roof.

“You don’t really know what to expect when you ask a bunch of illustrators to paint your walls. Playing safe has never really been the point of our events but the Subism team turned up and just got on with it. As you can see from the pictures everyone brought something different in terms of creative and whilst wildy different in style the work was all absolutely quality.”
Ian Hambleton, Partner / Account Director @ Studio Output London
