One of the main challenges was how to transform the conventional notebook into a more intriguing and compelling object, that would fascinate and amaze. It was also important that the book didn’t come across as a portfolio, but rather as an artistic object and introduction to Veikko Kähkönen’s work.

We took an unconventional approach, considering the subject matter, by hiding the photographs behind a “veil”, using slightly transparent paper and a Japanese binding method. This way each spread holds a hidden secret behind the pages that can be discovered, while the book still keeps its functionality.

Kobra is a designer driven creative agency. They create strong brands through research, insight and vision, delivering innovative, aesthetic and long-lasting solutions that work.

Graphic campaign and exhibition graphics (main entrance and activities space) for “Lee Miller i el Surrealisme a la Gran Bretanya” (Lee Miller & Surrealism in Britain) exhibition, by Fundació Joan Miró Barcelona.

Concept based on London Bulletin magazines (the most influential English Surrealist periodical, where each issue published had different colour covers). The colorful palette also reflects the power of Lee Miller, a real character as a woman and an artist. This power is also transmitted through typography, featuring and playing with Lee’s name.

“The outdoors ensures an escape for the overloaded mind. We are convinced that it is important to let nature become a bigger part of your daily life. In Norway they have a word for this, called ‘Friluftsliv’ that literally means ‘open air living’. That’s why we came up with the idea to handmake these natural soy candles with a scent of the Nordic nature. With this candle we want to share our inspiration and bring a little bit of nature back inside.”

A Rotterdam based creative & production studio that works for brands and agencies. Encrite integrates concept, creation and production under one roof! They support new companies, get brands started and refresh existing ones by branding, visual design, film, photography and content creation. Within their assignments and clients, they are always looking for diversity, new adventures and challenges.

An introspection on intimacy and female empowerment

On the 7th of February 2019, illustrator Marylou Faure opens her solo exhibition ‘Nobody’s Baby’ –
an intimate exploration of femininity which celebrates body-confident, independent women.
By using bold colours and a graphic style, the artwork brings into focus the power and mental
strength of Marylou’s characters.

Named after a song lyric which inspired the artist, ‘Nobody’s Baby ’ portrays women in private
moments of solitude and reflection, and offers a glimpse into the female psyche. The nakedness
of Marylou’s heroins is an expression of shameless self-love rather than sexuality and
demonstrates their freedom, in a physical and psychological sense, as well as their independence.

The exhibition will be held at The Printspace (located on 74 Kingsland Rd, London) from the
8th of February until the 27th of February 2019, with an opening night on the 7th of February
from 7:30pm.
