Karen Walker has a homewear line coming out later this year and we want these cups from the range.
We were invited to check out the new Bernar Venet sculpture at Gibbs Farm. The vertical orientation of the eight curved steel columns contrast with the broad horizontal planes of land and sea below the sculpture. They also capture the distinctive Kaipara light; as Venet says of his work, “I am thinking about the sunrises and sunsets, and the golden light that steeps the Corten steel in red and brown hints.” Arch took this shot that gives you a sense of how massive the work is - they are not miniature people!
In association with PQ Blackwell we designed this book for Oprah featuring photographs and interviews with some special VIPs - Simon Cowell, Condolezza Rice, Lorne Michaels, Maya Angelou, Jay-Z, Diane Sawyer and Ms Winfrey herself .
Arch has recently donned the design director cap at Shine and the Beck's Music Inspires Art campaign is a recent project to come out of that. Local artists took inspiration from local musicians to create some spiffing limited edition labels. Artists include Andrew McLeod, Gavin Hurley and Rainbowmonkey.

A sample of one of the ads we've been putting out for Crane Brothers. This one in Pilot magazine. A simple ad feels so much more refined and sophisticated. Just like Crane Brothers suits really. Killer website by Sons & Co - crane-brothers.com
A new title from viction:ary, Eat Me is a yummy look at graphic design and packaging in food items. The physical book is super cool, exposed spine, all uncoated with two sections printed on brown paper for a lovely striped effect on all four sides. The cover makes me dream of a white chocolate waffle cone, mmmmm. And as a bonus, Inhouse is featured within it's pages.
As a pre-launch to our first re-designed issue of HOME New Zealand magazine, we made a behind-the-scenes video of the design in process.
