The Royal Mint: 2011 Coin

DesignStudio have been commissioned to design the 2011 £2 coin for the Royal Mint. Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the first widely distributed bible, the King James bible.

DesignStudio have embossed the quote 'In the beginning was the Word' from John 1:1. A very clever design which commends the tradition of the printing process, and in an almost book-like fashion the quote is mirrored in raised and recessed repeat, could visually be folded upon itself.

Ryan McGinley. Sometimes mere words are just not enough to express your appreciation for some body's work. The colour, composition and otherworldly quality to these photos taken from 2008-present are just indescribable.

Sophie Whettnall's Endless Landscape is 12 metres of white pencil on black painting. Beautiful line and a contemporary take on landscape drawing.
