John Rushworth has developed a brand strategy and visual identity for Ten Trinity Square, a redevelopment of the former Port of London Authority building in the City of London consisting of a private members club, 41 luxury residencies and a Four Seasons hotel. It is the first investment of Chinese conglomerate Reignwood, outside of Asia in super prime real estate.

The brief was to reinvigorate the purpose of the building and create a long-term vision that would also support Reignwood’s future investments in the sector. To do this, the project had to be positioned in a way that recognised its location, architecture and historical importance.

New Work: ‘Alan Kitching’s A-Z of Letterpress’

A-Z-0001_RT_620

Graphic designer, typographer, letterpress printmaker and teacher, Alan Kitching is internationally renowned for his expressive use of letterpress type processes. His latest book, Alan Kitching’s A-Z of Letterpress, showcases the extensive wood-letter fount collection of The Typography Workshop.

The book is a collaboration between Kitching and Angus Hyland. In 2014, Hyland approached Kitching with the proposal of hand-setting letterpress alphabets to celebrate the Typographic Workshop’s 25th Anniversary. Together they devised a page layout and Kitching set the entire book, which is printed on letterpress and then reproduced at the same size.

Success Academy is the largest and highest performing network of charter schools in New York City. Founded and led by former city councilwoman Eva S. Moskowitz, Success Academy’s growing group of publicly funded, privately operated schools includes 24 elementary schools, seven middle schools and one high school that provide education for nearly 9,500 students across the city. Primarily serving underprivileged children, SA consistently has the highest test scores of any schools in New York, regularly outperforming institutions in wealthier communities. Tonight Success Academy will celebrate its own continuing “success” at its Third Annual Spring Benefit.

Pentagram’s Michael Bierut and his team have designed a graphic identity for Success Academy that conveys the schools’ innovative educational mission. The system extends to environmental graphics that help motivate students and build school spirit at Success Academy locations, which share space with New York City public schools.
