A+: 100 years of graphic communication at Central Saint Martins


We recently curated and designed this exhibition which celebrates 100 years of graphic communication by women who studied or taught at Central Saint Martins. It generated a lot of interest, and interviews and blog posts can be found at Buzzfeed, Central Saint Martins, American Institute of Graphic ArtsIt’s Nice That, Johnson Banks, and Adrem Recruitment.

Coinciding with Women’s History Month, and international women’s day, the exhibition was based on Ruth’s ongoing research into the history of women in Britain in graphic design. It was on show to the public at Central Saint Martins from 23 February to 22 March 2016.

Many thanks are due to the team of CSM graduates and students who helped make the show happen:
Miho Aishima and Kat Garner for their invaluable work on curation and design. Thank you also to Amanda Choy, Clara Metter, Elky Li, Emilien Rabin, Lucy Budd and Syd Hausman.

Experimental printing

We recently designed unique risograph posters and flyers for Central Saint Martins.

CSM’s widening participation team asked us to design a family of logos, posters and flyers for three of their projects that needed to look creative and art-school. We experimented with the arty-but-cheap print process called Risography. It’s an imperfect process, but the imperfections are part of the charm, giving an experimental feel to the prints. The results are a unique set of posters and flyers. We worked again with our favourite Riso printers Hato press,who indulged our experiments using different combinations of coloured paper stocks and inks.

For economical, unique, creative printing, Risography is great.
