William Russell and team have designed a standalone shop and production office for Margaret Howell in Florence, Italy. The shop and office bring the British design company closer to their Italian suppliers, and is the brand’s first production facility outside of the UK.
The first Moss Bros. stores applying William Russell’s interior designs have opened. The redesigned stores are the physical application of Moss Bros.’ new identity, developed by Pentagram’s Harry Pearce and Naresh Ramchandani.
William Russell and team have designed Nigel Cabourn’s new flagship store in London. Based in Covent Garden, the store is Cabourn’s first outside of Japan.
The interior of the store reflects the brand, which is inspired by traditional British military uniforms and the iconic outerwear of famous explorers. As with all of Cabourn’s stores, the London edition takes aesthetic clues from old army gyms.
This past weekend, the Society for Experiential Graphic Design held its 2014 SEGD Conference in Atlanta, where it announced the winners of the annual SEGD Design Awards.

Square Pie is Britain’s first gourmet pie company, having created 116 different types of pie and providing a truly British culinary experience. To coincide with this week’s launch of their new outlet in Stratford City Westfield, Square Pie asked Pentagram to refresh their identity to reflect their experience within the industry.
Over the past year the lobby of the Public Theater has been transformed into one of New York’s most vibrant and welcoming spaces for theatergoers. As part of a major renovation by Ennead Architects, Pentagram’s Paula Scher has created a program of environmental graphics for the space that integrates her iconic identity for the Public into the architecture of the theater itself.
The renovation opened last fall, but the graphics program was initially incomplete as elements have been gradualy installed throughout the season. The major work on the lobby is now complete, and Scher and her team continue to put finishing touches on other parts of the project.
Tantrum, a new retail concept aimed at teenage girls, has launched its flagship store at Westfield Stratford in London. Pentagram partners William Russell and Domenic Lippa collaborated to develop the interior store design, brand identity and graphic language.
The logotype, designed by Lippa was based around Din rounded, with some characters re-drawn to give the identity personality. In addition, Lippa and his team decided that the identity could be moved, overlapped, made into outlines and played with to keep it fresh.
