Sea wins graphics bookshop job

Arts bookseller Zwemmer is opening a new bookshop, billed as the world’s only bookshop dedicated exclusively to graphics, typography, product and industrial design, and commercial spaces.

The interiors are by Sea, which stands for science, ecology and art, using the existing blue Zwemmer logo. It will be a “simple classic backdrop to the books,” says Sea director Simon Catton. The three-strong consultancy is unrelated to graphics group Sea.

Located on London’s Charing Cross Road, the shop opens on 30 October.
