We were commissioned to design an invite card to celebrate the opening of Sarah Pickering’s exhibition Aim & Fire at Durham Art Gallery.Read More...
An image from Pickering’s Locus+ commission, Celestial Objects, was used as the lead image for the invite. Created by photographing a revolver fired in total darkness, the image captures the entirety of a gunshot from start to finish.
We designed a card subtly referencing the gun that was used to make the image. To the reverse of the image, typesetting was influenced by the styles of Smith & Wesson and other gun brands and the material – a cast coated metallic silver – is a reference to the materiality of the weapon.
We also designed the exhibition vinyl for the venue.
