An enduring book design that puts the content centre stage
Successful book design is all about sensitivity to the content. With the Prix Pictet being one of the world’s most prestigious photographic prizes, we let the work itself be the star.
At Together Design we’re passionate about book design and we’ve worked on the last four annuals for the Prix Pictet. Each year the prize has a different thought-provoking theme – ‘Water’ for instance, or ‘Power’ – which shapes the nature of the entries and encourages photographic responses of the highest quality.
We have a wealth of experience of creating a sympathetic feel and structure to help show off the content to its best effect. Working alongside Candlestar, the prize secretariat, the editorial team and publishers teNeues, we developed an understated design that complements the book’s high production values, shows the prize entries in the best setting, and is versatile enough to work with a vast range of photographic styles.
The prize goes from strength to strength, and is now showcased through touring exhibitions taking in major arts venues across 35 countries, for which we also design the invitations and gallery guides.
