Edmond & Corrigan + Peter Corrigan
Influence: Edmond & Corrigan + Peter Corrigan, under the steady guidance of editors Vivian Mitsogianni, Patrick Macasaet, pays tribute to an architect and educator who, together with his partner Maggie Edmond, left an indelible mark on the visual landscape of Australian design.
A key challenge in producing the publication came in translating an original series of live presentations into a printed, bound and ‘archive-able’ edition. The design approach also sought to pay similar tribute to the sensibility of Edmond & Corrigan by utilising motifs contained within the rich variety of drawings, imagery and photographs (many rarely seen) sourced from the RMIT Design Archives and generously supplied by photographer, John Gollings. For instance, graphic tiling on the pillars inside RMIT Building 8 were redrawn and used within page gutters to aid readers in navigating between contributors, much as these designs would have helped visitors locate themselves within the physical building.
A strictly geometric display typeface was developed in parallel with the book that responded to the playful yet rigorously constructed architectural details featured within. The completed design also included typographic illustration by emerging designer Nina Gibbes.
