NB Studio has designed the British Heart Foundation’s Annual Review 2010 following its inclusion on the charity’s design roster (News, DW 26 August). Illustrator Frances Castle and photographer John Angerson have contributed to the design, which has been formulated in a comic-strip style. The review, titled ’Small wonders, big difference’, charts the charity’s development since 1961 through a ’timeline of illustrations’, but primarily focuses on its work over the past year.
The online publication will explore a range of issues through a unique typographic system that aligns subject matter with specific fonts.
