Rethink: the way you live


Working closely with Amanda Talbot and publisher Tracy Lines, This is Ikon delivered a fresh approach to this interiors book. Published by Murdoch Books, Rethink's revolutionary approach reveals the ways we can weave creativity, sustainability, quality and technology into our life and home. Ikon aimed to connect all the ideas within the book by specifying a vivid green spot colour and drilling a small hole from the cover title through every page. The latter could be seen as irreverent or even irrelevant, but is intended to raise the question ‘why’, encouraging readers to think about their own perspective.

 

"…two angels joined in on the project – Tracy Lines, my publisher, who was art director for Inside Out magazine and now editor for online magazine The Quintessential Magazine, and designer Kate Dennis from This is Ikon. They both understood and believed in the book. It was like joining a huge jigsaw puzzle together and I couldn’t have done it without them.”
