Relive The Games
London studio, Design by St, was commissioned by The Times to showcase the newspaper's recent Olympics coverage in a new book. The Games documents Team GB's finest moments of London 2012...
Working with The Times' design editor, Jon Hill, and a combined editorial team from Harper Collins, Design by St repurposed existing newspaper content into a book layout, including some of the best Times photography from medal-winning events over a series of dynamic spreads.
Each day of the Games is introduced by full page image and a large numeral on the right-hand page, complete with a medal tally for Team GB (opening ceremony shown, above; Rebecca Adlington and a Bradley Wiggins supporter shown, below).
Design by St is a London based graphic design studio founded by Steve Fenn and Tom Pollard formerly of Studio8 Design. The studio's brand new website has also just launched at designbyst.com.
The Games is out now in bookshops and available from Amazon, here. Copies featuring the limited edition gold/black duotone wrap cover (shown above) are available to Times+ members and can be ordered from The Times directly.
I think its brilliant. These sort of events need to be documented more, especially when the production value is as high as this one. I documented some of the Olympics too, but I focused less on the positive parts and created a reminder to the negative press that the event got in the days leadiing up to the olympics. It was called 'Never Let the Truth Spoil A Good Story' and can be viewed here: http://www.lukeburroughs.com
I'm definitely going to pick this edition up. Always been a fan of studio 8's typographic sensibility too. Inspiring, even though the event is over. I like that.
Looks great – I want it! However the buy link doesn't seem to work?
Ignore my comment about the buy link... wrote that a bit too quickly.
Looks great think i might snap me one up!
