It’s not uncommon for design agencies to upload a host of new work at around the same time, giving us several occasions to remind ourselves of their creative brilliance. So it is that only weeks after drooling over Build’s identity refresh for Generation Press we’re here to celebrate their limited-edition book to accompany the Barber Osgerby In the Making exhibition at the Design Museum (for which Build also did the design).
The show explores the way well-known products are actually produced – an unashamed celebration of pure design process – and so the curators needed to get hold of a range of different everyday objects. To say thank you to the lenders of these objects, Build worked with Barber Osgerby on this beautiful book, where each object is printed on its own G F Smith Colorplan stock. And if you’re a fan of things coming full-circle, it’s printed by Generation Press…
