CR Annual 2017

Build print for the 100th year anniversary of Johnston Typeface

Transport for London’s print series celebrating 100 years of the Johnston typeface has been included in the Creative Review Annual 2017.

We were approached by TFL last year as one of just 11 studios asked to design a print to celebrate the iconic sans serif typeface designed by Edward Johnston under the creative direction of Frank Pick. The face was revolutionary in unifying the visual output of the London Underground.

The print was produced as an exclusive and limited edition, alongside a poster version. The series launched at Clerkenwell Design Week in May 2016 and was also displayed at last year’s designjunction event.

A big thanks to Creative Review for covering the Johnston Typeface anniversary print series in The Annual – an awards scheme that aims to highlight stand-out work from around the world.
