'BLACKLETTER:
GUTENBERG TO BARNBROOK' ° •Final Year Dissertation•
Is the typeface relevant to nowadays?
Studying this topic has made me realise how people have forgotten the history behind the type from the beginning. They associate it with the Nazis or perhaps a tattoo bar, which Is why some designers choose to avoid it because it has a bad look impression. °

Before the 14th century, it was Monks who completed handwritten books, or manuscripts. Their illuminated manuscripts were time consuming to create, but remain beautiful artefacts. It was the work of these scribes that inspired Gutenberg, when creating the first typeface for his printed bible. °
Thank you to Stephen for giving me permission to use his photography taken from a copy of the Gutenberg Bible owned by Ian. ●

● ° 'BLACKLETTER:
GUTENBERG TO BARNBROOK' ° •Final Year Dissertation•

Deciding on a topic for my final year wasn't hard to pick, the Gutenberg Bible was always an interest I wanted to research further (still researching out of interest). An interesting topic that encouraged me to look into all aspects from printing methods to contemporary uses of blackletter. Although I got so caught up on the history of the Printing, the contemporary artists were forgot about for a while, but I got there in the end up! °

This book consists of, ° ●Pre Gutenberg and the Labour of the Scribes,
● Gutenberg and Movable Type,
● The endurance and transition of Blackletter,
● The Four Blackletters,
● Other uses of Blackletter, ● Examples of contemporary uses of Blackletter,
● Barnbrook Bible,
● Conclusion. ° •

We’re excited to finally reveal the sleeve artwork we produced for @secret7s ‘I’m Not Down’ by The Clash.

Kintsugi is a Japanese technique of repairing broken ceramics using gold lacquer to highlight the joins: using a contemporary, punk-inspired, take on this technique our artwork expands on the idea of not giving up, of life’s incidents making you stronger, and, rather than trying to forget about them, celebrating the flaws that define you.

Many thanks for @beforebreakfast_london for producing the risograph prints used in the making of this sleeve.

Art Basel rebrand: Throwback to one week ago in Basel, with the opening of yet another successful show at @artbasel. The 2018 edition of the show showcased the brand refresh that @barnbrookstudio has been developing for over a year.

We have redrawn the original ‘Art Block’ typeface used for the brand identity, in addition to two custom-made fonts that are used across all Art Basel communication, branding as well as a fully-integrated signage system.
The clean, contemporary and confident typography aims to reflect Art Basel’s pioneering role in the art world. •
The visual campaign has been executed in collaboration with photographer @alastairwiper, who shot the interiors of Basel’s most celebrated cultural institutions.
