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.’

IL Magazine Founders Grotesk Text

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.’

Feijoa used for the Meanwhile identity by Maud in Sydney, Australia

The project’s designers, Maud, write: ‘Meanwhile is a new menswear boutique located in the exclusive Kings Cross Hills of Sydney. Stocking the finest Australian labels alongside such international greats as Dries Van Noten, Whyred and Dana Lee, Meanwhile is a most welcome addition to Sydney retail in general, menswear specifically.

The identity uses only inked hand stamps combining cost-effectiveness with craftsmanship

‘We created an identity using only inked hand stamps, making it cost effective and low maintenance, whilst still retaining the considered craftsmanship that Meanwhile represents. The Brandmark itself is the joining of an M and a W forming one icon that alludes to a tailors stitch.’

National in use for Archives de gravés by Alain Vonck

French art director and designer Alain Vonck used National beautifully in this project. He writes: ‘There is a paradox. Personal data are omnipresent on the web, but at the same time invisible, stored in an immaterial place, making it hard to know their imprint on the web and their importance to us. They seem to disappear once the form in completed, unimportant and ephemeral… Yet, they pile up in databases, they are archived, analyzed… How come these data have such an impact, such perennial value for our physical and virtual identities?’
