Barbican Curve Exhibition Graphics & Communications
Gallery guides, invitations, exhibition graphics and flyers for an artgallery which hosts a series of new commissions created for the space by contemporary artists. The identity acts as a visual analogy; the grid representing the permanance of the space in which the artists info and /images are flowed into.

So I was casually browsing through my image archives the other day (like you do) and I stumbled across a very large set of North related images that readers of this site haven’t seen online before. I spent about 5 minutes considering whether to feature them or not, but in the end I decided to save them for another day – Sorry about that!
Instead, I’ve featured a nice selection of North’s timeless work for the Barbican. These images were previously seen in OK-RM’s portfolio (they designed these pieces at North prior to setting up OK-RM), but they were taken down a few years back to make way for new work and now, their new site (a proper feature will come soon).
Nevertheless, many of you who know North well will see these images a think to yourself: “legendary work, brings back good memories,” but many of you who are either new to SI and/or North will not be familiar with this work at all, and that is one of the reasons why I decided to go ahead with this new series in the first place – design this good needs to be appreciated by all, it shouldn’t stay locked away in a computer folder and admired by a select few.
Enjoy and I hope you all have a great long weekend. If you have any suggestions for future “SI Classics” features, feel free to comment, tweet or send an email.
