New York’s Drenttel Doyle Partners has won first prize in the outside services for book design category at the LMP Awards held in New York’s public library last week. The group was nominated for its design of William Wegman’s ABC book illustrating the alphabet.
The identity for the neighbourhood centres around a graphic “R” logo, which the studio says is designed to “almost disappear” when applied.
The company’s first new logo in 20 years was created by an in-house design team and looks to embrace both physical and digital platforms.
Developed by Vitamin London, the typeface uses letterforms taken from protest posters found at Black Lives Matter demonstrations.
The bottle will be made from sustainably sourced wood, and will debut with the Johnnie Walker whisky brand in 2021.
