Ravilious & Co.

Client: Towner Art Gallery

Exhibition, identity and product design for the Towner Art Gallery.

To help commemorate the 75th anniversary of the death of artist Eric Ravilious, the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne asked us to design the exhibition Ravilious & Co. Working with the Towner’s curatorial team we split the exhibition space into areas, creating set pieces such as a Corinthian columned entrance way and a ‘bookshop’ to display the large number of book illustrations and covers on show. A colour scheme and typography sensitive to the material on display, as well as a bespoke headline typeface added to the feel.

The Towner’s cavernous spaces have been transformed and humanised
for the occasion. Visitors enter by way of a large blow-up of Ravilious’s joyfully
Italianate engraving for the dust jacket of Osbert Sitwell’s Winters of Content,
to find themselves in a sequence of forget-me-not blue, primrose-yellow and
muted salmon pink spaces… The exhibition is a true delight.
Country Life

Our working relationship with Webb & Webb has been extremely positive
and the curatorial team have found them both flexible and available when needed.
All the timelines agreed at the outset have been met and proposed solutions for difficult
issues have been evolved iteratively at the required pace.
