Lose Yourself in a Good Book http://www.interstateofmind.com/lose-yourself-in-a-good-book/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/lose-yourself-in-a-good-book/#comments Wed, 09 Feb 2011 09:56:15 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=1018 Last Friday saw the re-release of Marian Keyes’ latest novel, The Brightest Star in the Sky, which we at Interstate are very excited about. Having been approached by Penguin back in October last year, following our hugely successful Jamie Oliver/Penguin collaboration, we were briefed to create a fresh new look for the Queen of Chick-Lit. With her writing described as wry, perceptive and charming, and with an army of readers already hooked on her grown-up brand of fiction, Marian’s books needed a cover to match this complex and intelligent interior.

Following much research into the lady herself and her audience, we settled on a typographic style which would allow growth through not only this current book and those to come, but also for the entire back catalogue. The final look uses connective lines illustrating the emotional journey that the reader is taken on, leading into key elements from the book’s content. The typographic look was softened by the publishers through the use of a sketched vignette and an advertising campaign, advised by ourselves, was rolled out at the end of last week. We even saw a TV ad over the weekend…

A century of Olympic posters http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-century-of-olympic-posters/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-century-of-olympic-posters/#comments Tue, 02 Nov 2010 10:29:43 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=695 Passing the local library, I stumbled upon a graphic designers dream; a collection of Olympic posters showcasing the past century of games. Styles have changed over the years from strong, almost propaganda style glorious paintings, to minimalist iconic graphic art. In my opinion, the style peaked in Mexico '68 (main image).

Passing the local library, I stumbled upon a graphic designers dream; a collection of Olympic posters showcasing the past century of games. Styles have changed over the years from strong, almost propaganda style glorious paintings, to minimalist iconic graphic art. In my opinion, the style peaked in Mexico ’68 (main image).

The exhibition is still running; well worth a visit. Apologies for the image quality, the lights were low to protect the prints. Better images of the collection can be found in the Independent article here.

The jury’s out if the 2012 posters become design classics, but as long as they leave off any reference to double decker buses, bowler hats, ‘Cool Britannia’, the 2012 Logo, accompanying typeface and McDonalds Logo, they should be great.

Lotus Evora Cup GT4 Photo Shoot http://www.interstateofmind.com/lotus-evora-cup-gt4-photo-shoot/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/lotus-evora-cup-gt4-photo-shoot/#comments Sat, 24 Jul 2010 15:32:40 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=51 Yesterday I visited the Lotus Cars factory in Norfolk to photograph the new Evora Cup GT4 with renowned motorsport and automotive photographer Patrick Gosling. The day long shoot coincided with the car’s shakedown track testing session in the morning at the company’s Hethel Test Track before moving on to Snetterton Circuit in the afternoon to really put the car through its paces!

Vintage Monaco Grand Prix Posters http://www.interstateofmind.com/vintage-monaco-grand-prix-posters/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/vintage-monaco-grand-prix-posters/#comments Tue, 19 Jan 2010 18:08:57 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=76 While researching for a current project we’re working on in the studio I discovered some wonderful historical posters for the Monaco Grand Prix. Produced between 1930 and 1984, and illustrated by artists including Geo Ham and Michael Turner, they have provided a great source of inspiration and each beautifully encapsulate the motor racing atmosphere of their day.
