Founded in 2008, OK—RM is a collaborative practice engaged in ongoing partnerships with artists, curators, editors, architects, designers and institutions. Recent commissions include the exhibition design and campaign for Fear and Love (Design Museum), visual identities for Manus × Machina (The Met, New York), the British Pavilion in Venice, and Under the Same Sun (Guggenheim, New York) as well as book projects with artists Fos and Shezad Dawood. OK—RM’s art direction aims to engage clients and collaborators in a process that not only communicates who they are but clarifies what they are. Whether it’s a book or a visual identity, our designs seek to reflect a set of core values.
Founded in 2015, MARK+FOLD creates an alternative to overly-adorned stationery where shelf-appeal is placed before quality of workmanship and functionality. The result is a range of timeless luxury notebooks, notepads and cards. They have collaborated with stockists who share their aesthetic and ethos. MARK+FOLD work closely with family-run factories in the UK, as well as hand-making at their London studio. Each small batch or limited edition is thoughtfully designed, tested in discussion with their customers, and made to the most exacting standards. MARK+FOLD use exceptional papers and apply simple techniques to enhance their tactility and materiality.
Steven Watson started Stack because he thinks people want something better to read. There are piles of fantastic magazines out there just waiting to be discovered, and Stack makes it cheaper and easier than ever for people to find and enjoy them. Finding quality independent magazines can be difficult – most people don’t live near a great magazine shop, and there are so many options online that it’s easy to get lost amongst the pixels. Stack acts as a filter, selecting the best independent titles.
