The Design Files feature 'Fender Katsalidis: Working Architecture'

We’re always excited to see the books we’ve worked on celebrated by other publications.

Eye mag on Mongrel Rapture & ‘maverick-professional’ Stuart Geddes

Eye mag on Mongrel Rapture & ‘maverick-professional’ Stuart Geddes

Graphic design geeks out there might have spotted the whopping 18-page feature on the work of Stuart Geddes in the latest issue of influential international design quarterly Eye. We were lucky to be able to work with Stuart on the design of our books Mongrel Rapture and Episodic Urbanism, both of which went on to win awards thanks in no small part to what Eye describes as his ‘purposefully maverick-professional’ approach. Mongrel Rapture, in fact, features prominently throughout the feature. As Eye puts it: “In its sheer monumentality, it is tempting to compare Mongrel Rapture (and Geddes’ role in it)...
