A Practice for Everyday Life

We designed a small publication to accompany Mark Lewis’ Professorial Platform lecture at Central Saint Martins in spring 2014. The book incorporates an essay and stills from Lewis’ films, cataloguing his works from 1993 to the present day. Produced in a short run of 300 – enough for each attendee of the lecture to take a copy home. The book was riso-printed using BRYK, the equivalent of CMYK achievable using risographic spot ink.

Lewis developed the short film shown at his lecture into a feature-length silent film, Invention, which premiered in the UK at the BFI London Film Festival 2015. We designed the poster and key art for the film, building on the monochrome approach and typography used in the publication to emphasise the film’s focus on cityscapes, architectural form and the effect of light on its environment.
