I ordered this book online and a couple of days ago a beautifully designed and printed book landed in my mail box! (on the floor, actually).
The book is available for free within the UK (they just ask you to pay for the cost of postage) so I was a bit suspicious and hesitant to order at first, but then couldn’t resist it while rationalizing that it would be an unlikely scam, all these creatives that just can’t wait to get their hands on this nicely crafted book…
One Thing I Know is a collection of articles written and illustrated by over forty creative leaders, from the more established to niche start-ups, in order to share the knowledge gained from running a creative business with the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.
It is published by Creative England, designed by Fiasco Design, and available to order here: http://www.onethingiknow.co.uk/book/

The publicity for the ‘Death to Death and Other Small Tales’ exhibition (what a title!) at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art caught my eye because it is so unusual to see a typographic solution to an art exhibition. It made me curious to find out what’s behind it.
It was designed by Sumo, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, and on their website they explain the idea behind the design:
The “Death to Death…” exhibition identity is intended to engage potential visitors. It invites them to interact with the design in a similar way they will navigate around the exhibition itself: at first seeing elements which could be perceived as jumbled and confused, and then looking further, creating pairings and making connections, eventually understanding the complete picture.
There is also a practical side to the design solution – because there was no one artwork image that could be used to justifiably sum up the complete story of the exhibition, it was decided that a purely typographic route was the best way to circumnavigate this problem whilst simultaneously making a virtue out of the long and potentially difficult to use exhibition title.
