Ana Mendieta Gropius Bau Berlin
May 2018

The films of Ana Mendieta are showing at the Gropius Bau in Berlin. I have designed an ‘Archive Wall’ to put the Cuban artist’s films into context of her complete work. A nice journey back to the artist after having worked on the Exhibition Graphics for Mendieta’s retrospective at the Hayward Gallery a few years back.

Another Kind of Life Exhibition Catalogue

‘Much in this exhibition is unsettling; it’s not an easy couple of hours. But it’s packed with some of the great photographic projects of recent decades.’

CUBA Cookbook
April 2018

We have designed the new Cooking Bible for Phaidon.

A unique compilation of authentic home-cooking recipes from Cuba, reflecting the island’s remarkable culinary diversity. It’s coming out this June. The only thing I didn’t like about this project is that I couldn’t do the work in Cuba.

You can pre-order it here


The Great Dixter Cookbook
December 2016

Picked materials for this fantastic Cookbook, written by Aaron Bertelsen and published by Phaidon in spring 2017.

The recipes and tips how to grow everything you’d like to eat in your own garden are based on life in Great Dixter, a stately home with extensive gardens in East Sussex. Great Dixter was the family home of gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd.

Don’t be EU-Less
June 2016

In the running up to the EU Referendum, Kathrin Böhm alongside other artists/designers have encouraged humour, complexity, empathy and a cultural voice to the debate. Getting involved with her EU-UK project, helping to spread the word and of course getting my first debut on German TV.

The Bookmaker’s Studio
July 2015

I have designed a book for the photographer Jake Green called The Bookmaker’s Studio. It is a photographic project that explores the practices of some of the best established and emerging children’s illustrators working today. Jake has tracked them down and shot them at work in their studios, where they made magic happen before his very eyes. The book will launch at the opening of his exhibition of the same name at the ‘House of Illustration’ in Kings Cross London on the 3rd September 2015.

Please support Jake’s Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the production of this beautiful book by following this link:

Olivia Arthur: Stranger
June 2015

The second book designed for Magnum photographer Olivia Arthur is now published by Fishbar. Photographs from her residency in Dubai include intimate accounts of the city today, Dubai citizens as well as migrant workers. Framed by underwater shots from Olivia’s many dives to the shipwreck, that reminds us of a sea disaster in which 238 people (mainly migrant workers) lost their lives in 1961. We printed the book entirely on transparent paper, for once harvesting and using the show through of a paper rather than avoiding it.
