“The main idea for the spice packaging was to make a simple in use and rememberable image. It uses handwritten type to create home atmosphere.

There are many things I like about Stephen Coles’ recent book; the bright, clean design and the accessible structure allowing you to dip in and out; but most of all, it’s the lack of fluff or filler. The content has been carefully honed to focus on the important details, which is in fact what the book is all about: the details of each typeface.
In highlighting and comparing the features that give each typeface its character, anyone exploring this subject can begin to make informed choices between similar typeface options.
The pithy descriptions describe each typeface’s origin and advise what makes each appropriate for certain scenarios and where it might fail. These are occasionally laced with a subtle humour that keeps the tone of the book warm.
The great balance of written and visual explanation means the book works well as a quick reference but has a seductive way of drawing you in to read more and examine further.
The newly rebranded, refurbished, relaunched and really quite amazing Shepparton Art Museum has been a very rewarding project for Alter.

The studio’s identity has been expanded to incorporate everything from broadsheet print through to museum signage. Here’s some of what we’ve produced.
