Creative Industry Practice: Unit Editions

Unit Editions was started by Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy, they are a publishing company.

As a company, they have such a clear style to the books that they publish, which I am really drawn too. Mostly because I love that kind of style, clean, great use of negative space and colour. But also because you can tell the thought that’s put into them and that they’ve really considered the author/content creator.

“If you’re going to sell books they need to have more than just content, they need to feel beautiful, they need to be objects of desire.” This quote from their talk I think encapsulates them, they truly understand good design and what a reader wants when reading a book.
