The Meringue Girls Cookbook


Well Made Studio have been getting their Merry Berrys on, courtesy of The Meringue Girls Cookbook, published by Random House. The book design itself takes its lead from the centrepiece – an enormous Rainbow Meringue Layer Cake – taking cues from this colour palette to split the sections and applying it to full colour pages for maximum impact. To add more depth and avoid flat colours, illustrator Kenn Goodall was commissioned to paint large, sumptuous […]

Profiles – John Lloyd


There are few bona fide heroes in this world. Ones that genuinely inspire and continue to do so and who’s experience and accomplishments give them an unquestionable sovereignty of voice within their realm. And it’s not just that – they belong to a unique club characterised as the original trail blazers, the ones who set the precedent and the ones who shaped the industry – and the landscape – by playing their part in defining it. One such person […]

A brand forged in Rock – Believe in


Every now and then one of those projects pop up in the studio that become something a bit more than another item on the to-do list, they become a love affair.

Index, the Auckland based design studio founded and run by Jonty Valentine and Amy Yalland, have just published their first book, ‘Explorations in Indexing‘. And what an exquisite piece of shelf-candy it is too… EiI the outcome of an open-ended exploration into the idea of indexing, functioning partly as a self-promotional device, the book is a sort of visual manifesto for the practice – it’s quite a stunning way to lay down the gauntlet and announce the […]

Heroes – Ben Bos


This week’s Masters Monday, Zebra’s Martin Maher talks Ben Bos… There is one book in my collection that I always go back to for reference. It’s not a huge, casebound tome filled with hundreds of pages of clever, poetic verse and tons of pretty pictures. It’s a smallish, humble, paperback book about a Dutch designer who’s work still looks as fresh, vibrant and downright stunning today as it did when it was first created back […]
