We’ve been working on our new stationery here at HF towers, something that’s always a tricky thing to do – stock samples, pantone chips, brand identity. It’s a dizzying task. It all began with some clever illustrated portraits of HF staff Tom, Jon and Stuart, created by Jean Jullien. These were then handed over to master-of-design George Bradshaw, who worked them into business card designs, which utilises the Circular typeface by Lineto. GF Smith Colorplan Cool Grey was the stock of choice, which was printed by the good folk at Darwin Press. Patrick Bateman eat your heart out.
The Lewis Chessmen are among the best known objects in Edinburgh's National Museum of Scotland. Originally made in the 12th Century, this Viking hoard of ninety-three carved ivory chess pieces were found some 700 years later in a sand-dune on the island of Lewis in 1831. The Museum commissioned Adam Stower to create designs based on these famous Chessmen, for a range of products including mugs, tea towels, bags and stationery. Adam Stower is represented by Arena
