Graphic Design: Modern Designers' excellent work with Creative Tourist

Posted by James Cartwright,

Manchester-based studio Modern Designers have recently updated their website – a simple, functional piece of interactive design that’s an absolute pleasure to use – and with it added an impressive array of new projects to their portfolio. There’s terrific work for the likes of outdoor apparel brand Hilly, urban gardening festival Dig The City, and luxury clothing brand Albam. But we keep coming back to their ongoing work with Manchester’s premier culture guide, Creative Tourist.

Modern designers have been at the heart of the Creative Tourist project since its inception in 2009, creating the initial concept and managing the subsequent creative direction, working with a fresh crop of creatives each year to define the annual identity, maintaining the immensely functional website and producing their printed magazine Where To Go. Lovely stuff.
