Bath-based Northbank has designed the 2003 Writers’ Awards book for the Arts Council England, taking its inspiration from the authors’ hands – quite literally. Photographer Kelvin Rogers has snapped the palms of writers like Salman Rushdie, Graham Swift and Rose Tremain, all of whom feature work-in-progress in the book, as well as taking their portraits. It is the third year running that the group has handled the project. The book is due to be published on 27 June.
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
