A quarterly members’ magazine for the Royal Academy of Arts.  Read more

— We were appointed as art directors of the long-running magazine shortly after the Academy was rebranded in early 2013. Working closely with a new editor, we quickly evolved the magazine’s design principles within the new brand guidelines. We freshened things up by commissioning new photographers for regular portraits and introducing witty illustration to a new ‘Debate’ section. Our continuing work helps one of Britain’s oldest and most esteemed art institutions review, showcase and debate art with over 100,000 members, four times a year.
