Mies In London is a project by Real Foundation that seeks to document modernist architect Mies van der Rohe’s only design for the United Kingdom, Mansion House Square; a bronze tower and grand plaza located at the heart of London opposite the bank of England and commissioned in 1962 by Lord Peter Palumbo. Following a long struggle with Royal and political concerns, as well as an increasing disfavour for modernism within the public consciousness, the project was halted by an inquiry in 1984 with many of the details and artefacts lost to time.

Goldsmiths’ biannual alumni magazine Goldlink has been redesigned by Spy, the design studio behind the university’s graphic identity. The magazine is distributed to over 50,000 former students and staff nationally and internationally, and in the redesign, needed to strengthen the relationship with its readership and reflect Goldsmiths’ position as a creative force with a rich research and academic legacy. Spy’s approach develops and employs the bold graphic language of the university, built around Commercial Type’s Druk and a preference for eye-catching blocks of colour set alongside or filtered into emotive images.
