The Design Papers issue 01.

The recent recognition of ‘The Design Papers‘ (National Design Centre) for editorial design at the 2008 AGDA National Awards made us realise that we haven‘t documented this project.

The publication was launched in October 2006, developed from mostly supplied media and writings, featuring work from John Gollings, David Lancashire, Gils Bakker, Pip Carroll, Marco Gjergja and Berlin based graphic design studio Cyan. Over six weeks the studio assembling, illustrating and making sense of 48 pages of content.

The cover shot features a Droog door mat that leaps off the cover with a twist. The image was photographed at the last minute on the roof of our studio on Greville Street, Prahran. The publication features Dutch designed font Strada by Albert Pinggera and was produced on web fed newsprint media.
