Founded in 1972, Hurtwood is a bespoke book production company now producing some of the world’s best art and creative industry books. In need of a new brand identity, we helped them to move forward with a strong connection to their rich history.
We created a new word mark based on a typeface designed by an old friend of Hurtwood’s founding father. We commissioned a makers mark – a wise owl from the woods – from renowned woodblock engraver Chris Wormell. And we collaborated with artists to produce bespoke swirling endpaper patterns to bring colour and energy to our work.
