The Queen’s House Founders Grotesk Mono

QK–RM used Pitch & Founders Grotesk Mono in their programme for the Queen’s House

London-based design firm, QK-RM designed the environmental graphics programme for the Queen’s House. They write: ‘Commissioned in 1616, the Queen’s House is one of the most important buildings in British architectural history, being the first consciously classical building to have been constructed in Britain. It was Inigo Jones’s first major commission after returning from his 1613–1615 grand tour of Roman, Renaissance and Palladian architecture in Italy. The building reflects Renaissance ideals of mathematical, classical proportion and harmony which would have appeared revolutionary to English eyes in its day.’

The design programme uses Pitch and Founders Grotesk Mono with with great sensitivity

QK-RM writes: ‘We were commissioned at the start of a two year master plan to review a new environmental graphics and way-finding scheme. The first step was to remove the myriad of municipal design languages that have crept in to the building in recent years. The new design idea carefully observes the historical legacy of the house whilst acknowledging the contemporary context within which it exists.’

Founders Grotesk X-Condensed in use for ‘It Chooses You’ by Project Projects

The designers at Project Projects never disappoint. We are quite enamoured with this project. ‘It Chooses You, published by McSweeney’s, is an account of how Miranda July spent her time while directly and indirectly working on the screenplay for her second feature film, The Future. Teaming up with photographer Brigitte Sire, July meets and interviews a range of Los Angeles residents found via sellers’ ads in the classifieds booklet PennySaver. Project Projects designed the book’s cover and interior template.’

Kröller-Müller Museum Karbon

Karbon in use for the Kröller-Müller Museum by EdenSpiekermann

The design firm EdenSpiekermann writes: ‘A hidden gem opens up to the world — the Kröller-Müller Museum is located in the beautiful ‘Hoge Veluwe’ national park, about a 75 minute drive from Amsterdam. It combines the second largest collection of Van Gogh paintings in the world with the biggest sculpture garden in Europe.

‘In spite of the uniqueness of this combination and the memorable art experience it delivers, the Kröller-Müller Museum too often isn’t on the travel plans of many Dutch and most foreign visitors to The Netherlands.

EdenSpiekermann developed a dynamic typographic concept and logo that are based on the customer experience inside and outside the museum walls. It is graphic as well as sculptural and becomes visible due to the interplay between light and shadow. We used Kris Sowersby’s beautifully crafted contemporary typeface Karbon and brought it to life with the help of Cinema4D software.

Inhouse, the Auckland-based consultancy who designed this project writes: ‘Coast, Country, Neighborhood, City stocktakes where Isthmus has come from and, most importantly, highlights the approach and attitude that they wish to take forward. The 25 projects selected illustrate the traits that the practice consider valuable: love of places, commitment to design, the power of ideas and a ‘no boundaries’ approach. The 400+ page hardback is edited by journalist Michael Barrett, features Kris Sowersby’s typeface Calibre throughout and is published by 6pt Press.’

A collection of posters, postcards and letterpress printed invitations were produced to support the launch of Coast. Country. Neighbourhood. City. Isthmus.

IL Magazine Founders Grotesk Text

Vllg klim il fgt
Kris Sowersby developed Founders Grotesk text for IL Magazine

Kris Sowersby writes: ‘I think Francesco Franchi is making some of the best infographic and editorial design today. To have such an array of my typefaces used for his masterful redesign of IL magazine is an absolute honour. The redesign started with Nº 34, using the entire Tiempos and Founders Grotesk families. It featured a couple of lovely logotypes by Christian Schwartz and his unreleased sans Graphik XXX Condensed. By issue Nº 38, it became clear that Founders Grotesk wasn’t working very well for text sizes, so I made Founders Grotesk Text. From issue Nº 44, Commercial Type’s Atlas Grotesk Typewriter was starting to be used, and issues, Nº 47 & 48 are using my Domaine Display — in one of the first public outings.’
