Back in Stock! Peeler by Dominic Kesterton / Available at www.draw-down.com / A colorful stream of drawings by Dominic Kesterton fill spread after spread of this eye-pleasing zine. Balls topple walls, brick men appear, and apples, vases, heads, hands, and flowers bobble across the pages. Peeler takes a graphic meandering journey through odd rooms and strange structures, introducing the reader to weirdos along the way. Published by Corners Publishing (South Korea.

We are a Manchester based design agency dawncreative.co.uk. We recently moved to a new studio space, and decided it was time to rebrand/reposition whilst developing a new website and collateral.
A clean, simple identity has been created that spans across our online presence and printed assets. The logo marque was created from the idea of a sunrise and incorporates our initials. The logotype is tweaked to 18 degrees which is the point in which the sun rises at dawn.
A living gradient has been used that moves through the different colour spectrums of our colour palette used across our online presence.
The printed assets includes business cards and an invitation to help us celebrate our 2nd birthday. Printed using holographic foil on G.F Smith Colourplan to convey the concept of changing light.

Trianon Typeface Specimen / Available at www.draw-down.com / The Trianon typeface, designed by Loïc Sander, is an exploration based on sources from Firmin Didot’s later work as well as other type from the late 19th and early 20th centuries based on the Rational or “pointed pen form” model. Includes “The Didot Style: a survey of the career of Firmin Didot,” an essay by historian Sébastien Morlighem about the achievements of French type founder and printer Firmin Didot (1764-1836). Morlighem analyzes the successive designs of Didot, from his early prototypical shapes to the late and more elaborated letterforms which won him fame. Accompanied by a photo essay, “Cities and gaze,” by photographer Hugo Deniau; and “Big Type Area,” a feature of large glyphs from the Trianon family, selected for their decorative qualities.
