Ranch designs for Nick Meek

Design studio Ranch has produced four A1 posters to promote photographer Nick Meek’s new agent in Paris.

Design studio Ranch has produced four A1 posters to promote photographer Nick Meek‘s new agent in Paris.

The posters fold into A4 slipcases and will be mailed in four batches to art directors around France. Each sleeve is numbered and features Meek’s details and the name of the photograph in a gloss white foil text.

The selected images showcase Meek’s photography beautifully, with each image representing a different season and setting: the first is of snow-topped mountains in Chamonix, the second of a car parked in a sunny Chevelle street, the third features California’s Merced River and the fourth a Venice skate park.

“Nick approached us and asked us to work on the project late last year. He was very open minded and we came up with a few ideas before deciding to print in A1 and fold the images into slipcases,” says Matt Hole, who worked on the project.

Folded, the slipcase colours are also striking and complement those captured in Meek’s images.

“It’s not every day you get to work with photographs as beautiful as Nick’s and we wanted to do them justice. It was really just a case of showing them off as well as we could, and thinking of how best to send them,” says Matt Hole, who worked on the project.

Meek’s work has featured in publications including The Times and the Guardian and in campaigns for brands including VW, Southern Comfort, the BBC and Playstation. His landscape images have also won D&AD and AOP awards, as well as nominations in our 2008, 2010 and 2011 Photography Annuals.

It’s the original marked-up artwork for Dark Side of the Moon: one of a number of treasures from the archive of design studio Hipgnosis featured in the issue, along with an interview with Aubrey Powell, co-founder of Hipgnosis with the late, great Storm Thorgerson. Elsewhere in the issue we take a first look at The Purple Book: Symbolism and Sensuality in Contemporary Illustration, hear from the curators of a fascinating new V&A show conceived as a ‘walk-in book’ plus we have all the regular debate and analysis on the world of visual communications.
