Socrates Editions 3Socrates Communications
Socrates is a design group based in London. In 2020, we launched ‘Editions’, a communications programme that articulates expertise in design and print, while celebrating the creatives with whom we work. The brief was to deliver something that our clients might enjoy – the critical element being not to talk about ourselves. Each signed, numbered, and limited Edition celebrates a specific person; circulated to our clients and creative partners, with several ‘artist’s proofs’ also gifted to our subject. Editions 3 features the work of renowned photographer, Brian Griffin. Celebrating his faintly surreal portraiture through five eclectic booklets, ‘ODD’ is encased in a shallow box to offer a theatrical discovery of his work. Laced with unexpected typography and curated visual layouts; bright colours juxtapose the predominantly black and white photography. The overarching ambition being to celebrate his bizarre, yet brilliant photography in an engaging way.
