Historic Royal Palaces
We've just finished putting the finishing touches on this brochure for The Historic Royal Palaces. They're the independent charity that looks after some of the most incredible places in London: The Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace. Surprisingly, they don't receive any money from the Government or the Crown, but rely entirely on visitors, members, donors, volunteers and supporters.
They asked us to design a brochure for their Adult Learning programme, which consists of a fantastically varied series of courses, talks and workshops at Hampton Court, Kensington and Kew - you can spend an afternoon making your own perfume, an evening learning about the history of gin (including a tasting session), or create your own roll of block-printed Georgian wallpaper.
We got a chance to spend some time at the palaces, which was brilliant, and shot a fair few images, some of which we went on to use in the brochure. (Check them out at Alistair's HRP Flickr set.)
We also created some hand-rendered text, based on their corporate typeface Farao, to use for bold headlines.
If you've not been to any of their palaces, or haven't been since you were a youngster, they're totally worth a visit. Heck, why not check out some of their courses?
