Pyott has designed the catalogue and website for natural world image library OSF, which relaunches its brand this week. The 200-page Eye Opener is OSF’s first major catalogue publication since 1993 and showcases the library’s ‘premium images’ in a narrative-style format. Sections include Lion Attack and The Rainforest.
