Football Hero Stamps for Royal Mail, by True North

True North was asked to design
a set of stamps for Royal Mail to
celebrate the 150th anniversary
of the foundation of the Football
Association, and the 140th
anniversary of the Scottish Football Association’s foundation. A team
of 11 all-time great players was
chosen to represent a combined
England, Scotland, Wales and
Northern Ireland team. True North
chose individual photographic 1 portraits of the players and then –working with illustrator Andrew Kinsman – brought them together to create a coherent tableau.

Mind and Movement for Wayne McGregor and the Wellcome Trust, by Magpie Studio

The Mind and Movement project aims to engage students with choreographer Wayne McGregor’s teaching methods and encourage them to deconstruct the way they think about movement. Magpie Studio says the typographic solution allows the key principles of McGregor’s methods to be illustrated without suggestive photography of dancers. The type can be broken down into its constituent parts and rearranged into an infinite number of patterns.

Fedrigoni Calendar 2013, by The One Off

The One Off was tasked with creating a giveaway calendar for paper company Fedrigoni, to promote its Woodstock range of paper stock. Taking cues from the Woodstock colours, which are reminiscent of school books, The One Off created a set of notebooks and a diary.

The identity uses a simple graphic ‘cut’ device, while communications use a series of food images shot by photographer Matt Seed using a Hasselblad camera. B&W says it contrasted the food images with bright use of colour.
