Following an extensive studio search The Washington Post, one of America’s most widely circulated newspapers, commissioned Stockholm based graphic design studio Snask to illustrate The Favorite’s Issue with a fun and tactile idea that would unite, amongst others, topics such as food and drink, music, art and the outdoors. Snask’s concept is informed by the essence and characteristics of each topic, and individually visualised through form, texture, colour, process and material variety. These are combined to create a rich cover, spread and set of single typographic panels bound by a physical crafted quality.

Located at the heart of Oxford, University Church of St Mary the Virgin, abbreviated to University Church, has been a site of worship and debate for over 700 years and is the “spiritual home” of the oldest university in Britain. The church recently received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to raise awareness of the historical nature of the site and to further enhance its potential as a tourist destination beyond the 300,000 visitors it already attracts per year. As part of this new remit, London based graphic design studio Spy were appointed by University Church to develop a new and more contemporary brand identity that could exist both on and off-line.
