Volume is a book documenting the first 25 years of internationally renowned architects, Stanton Williams. The book was conceived to be forward-looking rather than retrospective and represents a shift in the work and working methods of the practice with the emergence, over recent years, of large-scale buildings and public realm projects. As well as presenting the practice to an external audience the book was also conceived as a ‘spiritual guide’ and manual for the Stanton Williams studio.
Working closely with the directors throughout the entire process, we designed the book in parallel with the practice identity. This provided a unique opportunity to extend and develop the visual language beyond the basic communication requirements. The stencil font, that we created for the logotype, was extended into a full alphabet and is used for the front cover and chapter divider pages.
