BP&O Collections — Spot Colours

Selected by Richard Baird.

A continually updated gallery of graphic design, visual identity and packaging work, reviewed and published on BP&O, that employ a distinctive use of spot colour. These include a finely detailed use of metallics, pages of solid bright colour and moments of richness. This post features work by Bond, Blok and Bunch, and covers a variety of projects, from books and retail branding, sweet packaging and print production studios.

This post explores the immediacy of solid colour, the pleasure and interaction of multiple spot colours and occasions where metallics are used to draw out details within photography. Functional uses of spot colour include catching the eye, marking a change between content, or as a component to link products and differentiate brand.

The conceptual approaches include the extensive use of spots to express the capacity of a print production company Cerovski, the unifying of disparate photographic styles throughout Migrant Journal, and the warmth and joy of a bright orange as an articulation of the singular theme of MacGuffin magazine. Also check out Fluorescent Ink & Papers, Blind Embossing and Die Cutting.
