Zak Group was commissioned to design a bespoke type treatment for Frank Ocean’s magazine Boys Don’t Cry and to design the masthead.
Following its long-awaited public release Frank Ocean published the foil-wrapped magazine Boys Don’t Cry which included a special release of the album Blonde. The magazine, featuring three alternate covers, was launched at four pop-up newsstands in Chicago, Los Angeles, London, and New York on Saturday, 20 August 2016. The compendium of poetry, interviews, essays and photography includes contributions from Kanye West, Wolfgang Tillmans, Tyrone Lebon, Viviane Sassen and Tom Sachs among others.
The lettering of the hand-distorted masthead was made by scanning originals on a large-format scanner. The technique of printing, capturing and manipulating original artwork references historical works by artists such as Bob Cobbing or experiments made in the late 60s with the then-new photocopy technology.
"The art of designing a museum is one filled with expectation and promise: a unique challenge for designers. It’s been a rare opportunity for the talents of Fernando Gutiérrez, Morag Myerscough, Cartlidge Levene, OK-RM and Hato to define the character and personality of this new incarnation of the Design Museum in South Kensington."
"The identity for the Design Museum is crisp, clean and acts as the nervous system of the museum. The job was given to Fernando Gutiérrez and his London-based studio of the same name, which has an international client list and a talent for creating identities, exhibitions and signage."
