Fully Booked Show in Helsinki
Our exhibit Fully Booked: Ink on Paper is traveling to the Design Museum in Helsinki! As part of the exhibition Don’t Shoot the Messenger, we will showcase work by 29 designers, including David Pearson, Coralie Bickford-Smith, and Stefan Sagmeister, in up to 300 printed publications.
Fully Booked: Ink on Paper is a showcase of innovative books and other print products at the vanguard of a new era for printed publications—one that is likely to be the most exciting in their entire history. From personal projects to premium artist books or brand publications, the selection of work presented in the book celebrates the tactile experience. Featuring innovative printing, binding techniques, radical editorial, and design concepts, this work explores the distinctiveness of design, materials, workmanship, and production methods—and pushes their limits.
The title of the exhibition Don’t Shoot the Messenger refers to the old saying and reminds visitors that the sender is usually just a messenger but not the one who brings the message. Graphic designers are messengers, whose role is being redefined as their professional field is expanding, as in many other areas of the arts and design. This exhibition at Design Museum explores the present state of graphic design and asks where it is headed.
Visitors to the exhibition can also see a graphic designer in action. The Dutch graphic designer Letman (Job Wouters) will paint a 17-meter long mural in the exhibition space. Letman will paint from 31 October to 3 November during the museum’s opening hours and the public is welcome to follow his work.

Lovely recommendation for Lass uns was pflanzen on Stiftung Lesen’s website. "Sehr schön aufgemacht, originell und sichtbar von Kinderideen inspiriert: Die Kombination von Fotografien, klaren, beschrifteten Zeichnungen und einfachen Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen wird junge Gärtnerinnen und Gärtner ab ca. 6 Jahren begeistern.”
A nice feature on The Great Wide Open on Geo’s website. "Die Bilder von verschiedensten Fotografen zeigen Mensch und Natur in trauter Zweisamkeit. Das tun sie auf eine so ästhetische Weise, dass nach Durchblättern der 352 Seiten kaum eine andere Option besteht, als aufzubrechen – in die Weite vor den Toren der Stadt oder in die Wildnis, in das kleine oder das große Abenteuer.”
Kitchen Kulture featured in the print and online editions of The Age. “A visual feast for every taste to savor…the book shows that the kitchen has come a long way from a simple functional space at the back of the house.”
