The Best of BP&O — Brochures No.1

Selected by Richard Baird.


A collection of brochures, catalogues, journals, lookbooks and programmes published on BP&O. These typically balance graphic design, layout, material choice and print finish, and often utilise colour, type, paper size and texture contrast to contribute to a distinctive brand identity. This selection features uncoated and coated papers, surface embosses, foils, dyed and unbleached boards and a variety of binding processes. Featured studios include Face, BRR, Tsto and Bedow amongst many others.

This post was published as a quick way to browse through BP&O’s content and gain access to older but equally interesting projects through different themes, in this case brochures, and expands upon previous posts under the category The Best of BP&O. This series can be subscribed to here.

Support BP&O

Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
