Jobs from the past - Number 14
Followers of this blog will know that my first post of every month is a "job from the past" so that I can show some of the really good work from years gone by and this one is from 2006.
Pencalenick House BrochureDesigned by Thirst in London, this is a beautifully produced brochure for an exquisite building. Thirst did the identity and this brochure for this architect designed house which is available for holiday rental. Architect, Seth Stein designed the house and it was constructed using local materials (it won the RIBA South West Award in 2009). This is a very high specification property and the rental price is comensurate with this standard! The brochure does a superb job at showing the property in an understated way which conveys the quality of the architecture and materials used.
Size of the job is 240x170mm, portrait, saddle stitched. The cover is a 6pp with the flap at the front and page 1 of the text has a 'throw out'. Therefore the spread above is the first spread seen which when opens then forms an 8pp double page spread, revealing the image as below...
The 6pp cover is on Omnia 200gsm and the 26pp (because of the throw out) text is on Omnia 150gsm. The tactile uncoated material works well with the images of the natural materials used in it's construction whilst still doing justice to the fantastic photography.
Print production is by Nigel Powell at Turnstone Print Solutions.
