Photographer Esther Teichmann‘s first solo show has just opened at the Man&Eve gallery in London, running until 14 October. A graduate of Kent Institute of Art and Design and the RCA – and a CR Creative Future in 2005 – Teichmann’s Silently Mirrored show brings together a series of photographs and a double screen film projection…

Born in Karlsruhe, Germany in 1980, Teichmann moved to the UK in 1998 and is now based in London. Much of her photography has a painterly quality and, in Silently Mirrored, Teichmann again takes “the body” (both her mother’s and her husband’s) as the subject of her compelling work.

Callum Bain: Radio Gabba

In the calm of Nottingham Trent University’s superb graphic design show at the Business Design Centre in London a couple of months ago, the atmosphere was regularly disrupted by the work of fellow NTU student, Callum Bain. He’d made an advert for a digital radio station; it was on his reel and he eagerly showed it to visitors every few minutes. Bain could have chosen any mainstream music genre for his particular radio station – but, instead, he decided to terrify people with gabba…

Illustrators Give Economist Campaign New Face

Seymour Chwast’s ad for The Economist: Chwast was one of six illustrators brought in by agency AMV.BBDO in a radical departure from previous work for the magazine
There are few advertising campaigns as renowned or as revered as that created for The Economist by AMV BBDO. The beautifully-written, white out of red lines have become a classic of the genre. But what’s this? A new Economist campaign, in black and red? Using illustrations? Is this the end of an era?

Another AnOther Magazine

Cover of the redesigned AnOther Magazine which boasts a revamped identity and
new typographic language throughout
Many of our recent posts on magazines (Super Super, 032c et al) have suggested that there may be a sea change a-foot in the way many contemporary mags are designed and, indeed, in what their readers want from them. Sitting pretty comfortably enough away from the “ugly” side of the fence is the new-look AnOther Magazine; no stranger to high-fashion/art/design aesthetics itself, its redesign is part of an attempt to align AnOther specifically as a women’s fashion title. Its changes are, largely, typographic (including a new identity) and were brought in by creative director David James, art director Sara Hemming and design director Gareth Hague. If you like your magazines more elegant, you can rest easy – this is a day-glo-free zone.
