Design October

So today I was supposed to have my special feature-slash-review online covering one of Laurence King’s brand new (soon to be released) titles. Unfortunately the images for the feature haven’t arrived yet! Instead I have something equally impressive for you (dear reader) to kick-start the new month, so to speak:

Say hello to October, a brand new, London based, independent graphic design practice set up by the founder and former creative director of Carbon Design.

“Our ideas begin with the belief that for good design, everything must have a purpose. When everything has a purpose, design is useful, beneficial and aids understanding. This is visible when the client’s message, the product and the presentation are all interrelated.”

Suffice to say, if their portfolio is anything to go by, it will be exciting to see what these gentlemen produce in the near future.
