Jobs from the past - Number 88

Regular followers of this blog will know that my first post of every month is a "job from the past" so that I can show some of the really good work from years gone by.

Orla Kiely Spring/Summer 2008
Orla Kiely is the London based fashion designer, who's name has become synonymous with colour and pattern. She has created an instantly recognisable brand, in part due to her trademark print, the retro-tinged "Stem" graphic which is found on many items from clothing and accessories to homewares.
This is the invitation to the Spring/Summer 2008 private view. The size is 148x210mm folding out to 592x420mm (A2).

Printed offset litho in just two colours, fluorescent orange one side and a dark gold/brown special on the reverse 
It is printed on our Offenbach Bible 60gsm and it looks and feels gorgeous. The format, combined with the paper, gives the publication a light, malleable, tactile feel and as I'm sure you can see from the above image, the solid is amazing ...on 60gsm! flows and flops beautifully
Design was by the in-house design team at Orla Kiely. Designer on the project was Mary Leonard. Print is by Gavin Martin Colournet.

...yet another one of those projects that looks as fantastic now as it did ten years ago!
