Livingbridge is an independent private equity firm, based in the UK, the US and Australia. With five offices based in five major cities, Anatomy were commissioned to create a set of limited edition prints, each inspired by the different city’s familiar landmarks or locations which use a visual play on an unfamiliar fact.
It starts with ideas and after exploring many different routes, our illustrations combined minimal details and the use of negative space to create images with double meanings. We wanted to create strong images that would tell a story without using many words.
The minimalist style and flat colours in the final illustrations worked well with screen printing as a medium. We collaborated with White Duck Editions, to make the final limited edition prints.
