BBC GoodFood and Ebury Press relaunch their best-selling cookbook series this week with a modern and colourful new design, crafted by Interstate.

Celebrating its 25th birthday, BBC GoodFood has been feeding the nation with delicious dishes and giving top tips for the kitchen. To celebrate this benchmark, BBC GoodFood has recently refreshed its identity and Interstate was tasked with bringing it to life across its highly successful set of best-selling books.

We created a fresh and colourful design, guaranteed to stand out on the shelves and easy to use in the kitchen.

We are delighted with the results and can’t wait to get our aprons on.

A morning with Fedrigoni & Anthony Burrill http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-morning-with-fedrigoni-anthony-burrill/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-morning-with-fedrigoni-anthony-burrill/#comments Fri, 21 Jun 2013 10:31:15 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=3036 Tuesday morning took the team down to Clerkenwell for the opening of Fedrigoni’s Imaginative Papers Studio showroom.

Tuesday morning took James and myself down to Clerkenwell for the opening of Fedrigoni’s Imaginative Papers Studio showroom.

This was a great opportunity for us to check the true potential of Fedrigoni’s special papers. With shelves of impressive client samples, draws full of versatile stocks and stacks of beautifully designed Fedrigoni paper packs.

For this special event Fedrigoni collaborated with printmakers People of Print and graphic artist/print-maker/designer Anthony Burrill for a screen printing taster to celebrate the launch of Materica, a range of empathetic papers giving the same tactile and visual sensations as the natural elements that have inspired them. This was an exciting experience for us design geeks as we had the opportunity to screen print our own Anthony Burrill designed screens, which were then signed by the man himself.

Check out how we did…

We have been busy creating a new brand for a new energy company. From name creation onwards we have worked closely with the client to capture their unique spirit and human talent. The mark represents a continuous flow, the fact that Ennovor enables human motion, such as physically powering industry with B100 Biofuel.

Our journey is still in progress and a case study on our site will follow.

V&A – Hollywood Costume http://www.interstateofmind.com/va-hollywood-costume/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/va-hollywood-costume/#comments Mon, 17 Dec 2012 12:57:08 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2796 Hollywood Costume is the Victoria and Albert Museum’s blockbuster of the year.

Hollywood Costume is the Victoria and Albert Museum’s blockbuster of the year. So much hype to promote this exhibition featuring more than 100 costumes from iconic films.

Movies are about people. They are at the emotional core of every film and it is their story that moves us. A film’s characters hold our attention and are of endless fascination to the audience. Hollywood Costume is about the costume designer’s role in bringing these people to life – from script to screen.

All the years of avidly watching films seemed to have all been building up to this amazing cinematic experience. I was in complete awe of not only all the costumes, but the whole production of the event. Stepping into the exhibition brought the excitement that I feel when sitting down to a guaranteed classic film. Atmospheric music, along with archive files, making-of and behind the scene videos and beautiful and inventive typography used throughout.

Check this epic exhibition out for yourself at the V&A, but hurry because the tickets are sell fast!! (Exhibition runs – 20th October 2012 – 27th January 2013).

‘Special’, ‘Process’ http://www.interstateofmind.com/special-process/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/special-process/#comments Mon, 06 Aug 2012 09:24:38 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2388 The use of the humble Process Magenta and Process Yellow as some of the London 2012 colours has allowed the games to become immediately distinctive. These colours are two of the four inks that feature in standard printing, from newspapers to literature and the smart thing is, that by using these, allows some collateral to be produced without using special inks which would add to the costs of printing. When you consider how much must be printed for these games that’s quite a saving.

A gold medal for design intelligence.
