Art Book for the artist’s collective “Stormy Petrel” – artists Alanna O’Kelly, Orla Ryan and Brian Hand.
This book formed part of their commission from the GPO Witness History public art commissions 2016 to coincide with the centenary commemoration of Ireland’s 1916 Rising.
The Client wanted a limited edition book of 500 copies whilst somehow retaining the distinctive feel of a one-of-a-kind artist’s book.This was achieved with a rotating accordion bind, broken up into 6 separate sections with the cover made from a single sheet of navy card. The reader is steered through the book, rotating it at the end of each section which is punctuated by the navy cover card. Reading the book becomes an interactive, physical process with twists and turns.

Boland’s Quay is an exciting addition to the city. Set in the heart of the Docklands, this icon of old industrial Dublin has been rejuvenated to reflect the new face of the city. For this print execution we used foil blocking throughout, with spot metallic inks and produced a custom made slipcase to mirror the building’s stunning architecture.

Winning us Print Finishing of the Year Award 2016, this yearbook showcased some of the best design in the country. A year-long programme, Irish Design 15 explored, promoted and celebrated the best of Irish design. To really show off the brilliant work inside, we worked with the design team to develop a technique to allow the book to be opened flat. Beautifully designed, it was bound with a sourced fluorescent orange thread and came in a case with a blue metallic foil. The logo was debossed into 2mm greyboard and mounted onto the covers.

Head Strong is the National Centre for Youth Mental Health. We worked closely with their designer to create Heads Together, an interactive workbook for Post Primary teachers. To make the 200 page workbook user friendly, we used uncoated stock and lay flat binding to make it easy to write in. We also printed and fitted a dust cover onto each book, this doubled as a poster for teachers to use in the classroom.

A new addition to Dublin’s iconic St. Stephen’s Green, LXV is the city’s latest commercial real estate development. To strike the balance between contemporary and classic, we used bright colours and gold ink throughout. It was important that the end user could really look at the images, particularly the floor plans, so we created a Singer sewn bind along the spine to accommodate this.
