Wallpaper* in 15 shades
To mark the 15th anniversary of Wallpaper* magazine, the publication collaborated with GFSmith to produce 15 limited edition Colorplan covers.
To generate the original artworks, a diverse group of contributors from the creative world was assembled, including It's Nice That, Spin, Nike and Agent Provocateur. Asked to interpret the theme, 'Wallpaper* Famous for 15 years', and to base their work upon one colour from the 50 shades in the Colorplan range, the brief inspired illustrative, graphic, photographic and typographic responses. The paper is an integral part of each design, and print specialists, FE Burman, used a range of digital printing techniques, including multiple passes of white ink, to bring out the best in each cover.
