Portfolio with personality

Travelling Light by Sean Izzard

This is not your average folio.  Not only do you get a sense of Sean's technical skill but his personality and interests in life.

The book design also has serious attitude.  It was laid out by a professional designer, who drew on the principles of Dutch photobook design to inspire the reader to keep turning the page.

Sean produced this in a large custom size that does justice to his images, with an embossed Dove linen cover that complements the tone of the images inside.

Portfolios for meetings vs mailing

Portraitwork by George Fetting


George has curated a classic selection of photos from his archive, that highlight his creative approach to portraiture and the diversity of his clients.

The Grand size book and box set emblazoned with his logo will stand out in a meeting, and the deliciously tactile matte black cover will stick in the memory of agency folk too. The complementary edition of 50 saddle-stitched booklets will keep his work circulating and in the face of creatives.
