BP&O Collections — Brochures No.7

Selected by Richard Baird.

BP&O Collections — Brochures No.7

The seventh collection of brochures, annual reports, catalogues and event programmes published on BP&O. These mix layout, material choice and print finish, and between them effectively utilise colour, type, proportion, image, texture and paper contrast to communicate, compel and contribute to a distinctive graphic identity. This selection features uncoated and coated papers, spot colours, blind deboss and die cuts, and includes work by studios Folch, Spy and Toko.

In the spirit of trying to subvert the chronological value-hierarchies of the traditional blog format 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. Further, this is less about optical pyrotechnics, although that is a consideration, but how each of these fulfils a role within a broader system, click each image to read more. This expands upon previous posts under the category BP&O Collections. If you liked this check out more brochures here.

This post moves between a simple use of type and arrangement to those employing dyed boards and print finishes to call to mind architectural materials, processes and principles. Light and shade, the framing of space and a play with light and shade are recurring motifs, yet are weaved together, alongside other assets, to create a distinctive identity. Occasionally this breakaway with an unusual and unexpected use of colour, serving to differentiate and emote. Check out plenty more at BP&O – Collections or subscribe to the series here.
