New print design: the RSA Future Work Centre

We have a really exciting new print design project that I’ve just published on our portfolio – new work for the Royal Society of Arts: the launch of the RSA Future Work Centre.

Last week I was lucky enough to attend RSA Director Matthew Taylor’s annual lecture in the centre of London. The theme was ‘Good Work For All’ and prepares the ground for the major review of working practices that will be published in June. This has been commissioned by the Government and was even mentioned in the Spring budget by the Chancellor earlier this year.

One of the themes that was mentioned at the lecture was the stack of worthy reports there have been over the years which after great applause, then gather dust on shelves – with careful recommendations ignored. The good news is that the RSA have thought about this before even launching the review. They are launching the RSA Future Work Centre with the mission of implementing the core ideas from the report with ‘research, pilots and policy advocacy’.

So – this brings us to our involvement, as this quote is from the leaflet we’ve recently finished which has launched the programme. We had a brief to design a visually striking leaflet which went in tandem with a series of other pieces of RSA literature and uses this bold pink and grey colour scheme.

We have created a ‘visual motif’ for the RSA Future Work Centre and chose this concept of a stylised architectural plan of a spiral staircase. It feels like a really good fit for the project – architectural and (hopefully) elevating. It’s our great hope that the design will roll out over a series of media in the coming months, starting online.
