Coggles S/S 2012

Coggles is a Boutique Department Store (& Designer Store Of The Year) with a four floor shop in York's historic centre and an on line presence with over 2 million vistors a year

Victoria Bage started Coggles in 1974. From the opening of a quirky stall on York market, her designs proved so successful that by 1976 she had opened her store. Originally named Sarah Coggles, the name came about because Victoria's husband was having an affair with his secretary, Sarah Coggles. On discovering the affair, Victoria promptly divorced him and named the store after the secretary to remind him of the mistake he had made!

This publication is the Coggles Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook and because it is a department store, the content is wide and varied, including fashion, accessories, homeware, furniture and books.
Format is 200x270mm, portrait, saddle stitched with an 8pp cover (155mm flaps) and a 32pp text. It's printed on Omnia 280gsm and 150gsm. The quality of images and the reproduction is fantastic whilst the Omnia still makes it feel tactile and engaging in the hand.
Spread on inside front cover flap.
Art Direction and design is by No Days Off. Creative directors on the project are Patrick Duffy and Teo Conner. Designer is Charlie Hocking. This is the clever company that recycled it's old stationery to make new stationery - see previous post:;postID=5178695148461243374

It's been beautifully printed by Kingsbury Press. They are a family run B2 printers based in Doncaster and many design agencies that I know have been using them recently and if this job is anything to go by, I can see why...
