Artist Exhibition catalogue.

I was asked by textile artist Kate Whitehead to create an exhibition catalogue for her 2018 exhibit ‘Not from the Stork’ at the Knit and Stitch show. Olympia London.

Kate’s work is often created with found materials; raw, rough and scavenged… so the prospect of a clean, bright white exhibition catalogue seemed unsuitable for her work.

Instead we decided to use the newspaper format – being that newspapers are seen as disposable, temporary and perhaps more humble. Kate’s weaving and embroidery ‘explore the potential of the forgotten, overlooked and abandoned.’

Rough, spidery-lined illustrations and typography are scrawled across each page – covering the photos at times. Portions of text contain errors, crossed out words and misprints.

Colours were taken from the palette of Kate’s work paired with stitch-like lines and patterns in the background.
