I have been responsible for the Bristol Folk House (BFH) design requirements for over 10 years. The BFH are an Adult Education Centre in the heart of Bristol committed to encouraging a communal spirit of equal opportunity. Not only offering courses and workshops, the café and garden provide a peaceful retreat from the busy city streets.
Their printed termly programme of courses and workshops contains a great deal of essential information that needs to be presented in a coherent and easy to navigate layout. I enjoy creating the typographic hierarchy of styles that you need for a informative yet aesthetic page. In contrast, the cover has always been the creative platform to enhance the BFH’s unique inclusive personality that mainly draws on their 100 year history. Collage was often used in the earlier days to create metaphorical themes that reinforce the BFH commitment to learning for pleasure.
