Selected Leaflet | Invitation | Wrapping Paper
Leaflet | 297 x 420 mm folded to 210 x 148 mm
Designed by James Brook
Printed by Allander, Edinburgh
This is the leaflet and logo that I designed for Dovecot Gallery’s Selected 2015, an exhibition that brings together makers chosen by an industry panel, in a selling exhibition of high quality craft and design. Jewellery, silversmithing, ceramics, glass, textiles and furniture are all represented by the most talented craftspeople with Scottish connections.
The brief was to create something sophisticated and refined to reflect the standards of the work on display. I was shown a mood board that included various metals – whilst there wasn't a budget to use metallic ink on this leaflet, I was able to produce exhibition graphics that were stenciled to the gallery walls in bronze metallic paint. The leaflet had to serve several purposes: as an invitation to the private view; as a guide to the exhibition; and as wrapping paper! I created a repeat design for the reverse of the leaflet based on photographs from the Dovecot weaving floor that invited visitors to 'Please re-use as wrapping paper for your Selected gift!'
