SHEET: THE UO ZINE – ISSUE SIXMarch 3, 2015
For our sixth issue of SHEET: The UO Zine, we invited London / Leeds design agency Catalogue to curate a collection of artists from their creative community. Featuring a wide array of illustrators, photographers, digital and print designers, SHEET forms an artist index of emerging talent well worth keeping an eye on. Truth.
Catalogue co-founder Ollie Shaw shared a few words about the project with us.
“Catalogue is a graphic design studio based in both London and Leeds. We started around 4 years ago. Since then we’ve gone on to work with companies, businesses and individuals, creating a wide variety of print, digital and web design. We also run the independent publishing platform Catalogue Library. This platform facilitates artists, photographers and designers publishing outlets. To date we’ve published around 100 different titles, from small zines to larger books and magazines.
SHEET is an interesting way of showing the skills and talents of both established practitioners and young professionals eager to experiment. There is essentially no brief and that can be challenging, but when one person curates the magazine it brings together a uniformity that it wouldn’t otherwise.
When selecting the participants we basically chose people the same way as we do in Library Paper. We ask people to contribute and complete a short essay about their practice and the work they create for us. SHEET is similar but without any narrative about the work. When it came to selecting people, we looked at a lot of artists we’ve worked with before, friends and people that make work we admire. Again, because the contributions were curated by us, it all seems to fit together into a really fun, coherent publication that we’re super happy with.” – Ollie Shaw
