Dovecot What’s On Guide | January-June 2016
Designed by James Brook for Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh, 2016

210 x 148 mm | 12 pages with half cover
Printed by Allander, Edinburgh, on Vision Superior

This is the second edition of the Dovecot Gallery What’s On guide that I have designed. The guide follows the same format as before and is twelve pages plus half cover, which reveals half of a full bleed image of a detail from a rug by the artist Linder, Diagrams of Love: Marriage of Eyes, created with Jonathan Cleaver, Dennis Reinmüller and Kristi Vana Coleman at Dovecot Tapestry Studio in 2015. The rug became the ‘eighth dancer’ in a new ballet titled Children of the Mantic Stain, choreographed by Kenneth Tindall, with music by Maxwell Sterling, performed by Northern Ballet with signature sportswear designed by Christopher Shannon, commissioned as part of the Hayward touring exhibitiion British Art Show 8

As with the first guide that I designed for Dovecot, full-bleed images are used throughout in contrast with pages of pared back typography in black, grey and Dovecot Pink, printed on the clean white of Vision Superior, an uncoated paper with a pleasing feel. The format and template is adaptable to accommodate new types of information: in this case, to include more exhibition sponsor logos, the page layouts were tweaked slightly, whilst still retaining the look and feel of the first edition.
