The Twenty Two project

Design consultancy Two Times Elliott has curated 22 prints featuring the number two by agencies from around Europe to celebrate its fifth birthday.

Design consultancy Two Times Elliott has curated 22 prints featuring the number two by agencies from around Europe to celebrate its fifth birthday.

Studios and designers including Magpie, Studio Magkill, Spin, Colophon, Construct, Neubau Berlin and Sea were asked to interpret the number two as it forms “the core concept of the Two Times Elliott brand”. The prints are on display at the company’s London gallery until July 30.

22 copies of each print are also available to buy at Two Times Elliott’s store and all proceeds, minus production costs, will go to Cancer Research UK.

The exhibition is the first of two events planned to celebrate Two Times Elliott’s birthday and was also curated to showcase GF Smith’s range of 22 papers.

“A block of time became available at our gallery and we were thinking of ways to use it and celebrate our anniversary. We work quite closely with GF Smith so we thought it would be nice to use their paper range – each design uses a different stock” explains Two Times Elliott’s creative director James Horwitz.

“The brief was very loose – contributors are partly people we’ve worked with and partly ones we’re interested in and inspired by. The only requirement was that they interpret the number two,” he adds.
