Traditionally, People of Print’s reach to the creative communities had been through their blog, gaining huge traction and a directory of practitioners. The first foray into printed media, through Thames & Hudson, was put together to a rapturous response.

  • Design for Print
  • Arts & Culture


Working alongside PoP director Marcroy Smith and the Thames & Hudson editorial team, we were to design the 330 page publication that features print based creatives the world over. Considerations for the interview / essay, features and directory sections had to be taken into account.


Splitting the sections into Cyan, Magenta and Black coloured parts, we defined the sections and utilised the large format of the book to showcase the imagery throughout. The skeleton of the page, the grid, was brought to the forefront of the page design.


With such an array of content from multiple sources, we pieced the designs together ensuring the images were adequate for print and the layout and composition was sympathetic to the content. Because the content is so creative, the page design was intentionally stripped back to allow it to sing.
