I designed this brochure and produced photography for architects Berman Guedes Stretton with a wrap-around cover which allows them flexibility to update their project pages or add specific pages in the brochure for a particular presentation. The wire bound format also has the advantage that the document lies flat on a desk when opened.
BGS architects pride themselves on their green credentials and this was carried through into the brochure design with uses 100% recycled paper, eco inks and no plastics, laminates or glazes over the print. This was also a factor in choosing the smaller A5 brochure size as it uses less paper.
I’d previously designed their corporate identity based on the beautiful typeface Bliss designed by Jermey Tankard and a green and dark grey colour scheme which are here printed as spot colours lithographically but were chosen to translate well in four colour printing if required.
When photographing their architectural projects for inclusion in the brochure, visualising the format of printed page and the colour scheme the images were intended to work with helped to create suitable photographs on site.
I’m currently documenting each month the major design and redevelopment project Berman Guedes Stretton are undertaking for Pembroke College, Oxford University. The project involves a new quad in Oxford, a radical new bridge, an Art Gallery, Theatre, Cafe and Accommodation due to be finished summer 2012.

St Clement’s Church, Ashampstead, Berkshire contains fine medieval wall paintings dating from c1250. These four Holy Infancy scenes with their decorative heading are in the nave. They illustrate The Annunciation, The Visitation, The Nativity and the Appearance of the Angels to the Shepherds. The paintings were defaced and covered over at the time of the Reformation. they were rediscovered in 1886 and are now being conserved.
The wall-paintings were specially photographed to reveal the maximum amount of detail in the originals. More images from the photoshoot
Also available at St Clement’s Church are a set of 6 different postcards of the Nativity and a folded card. Proceeds from the sale of the cards go to the maintenance of the church. Map showing location of the Church
