bptw partnership is an award winning practice which provides the services, architecture, cost consultancy, project management and visualisation. Their approach is centred on people, and partnership defines the way they work. bptw partership asked Raw Nerve to design a family of brochures which explained each category of service they offer. The challenge was to distinguish between the services as well as reveal them as complementary and cohesive. Raw Nerve designed four separate brouchures, distinguished by colour and image, which were simply bound with a thick white band. In this way the brochures could work as a package or be sent out separately.

To read the stories the sofa has to be explored and interacted with, lifting cushions to reveal tales and listening to sounds coming from deep within, which unravel the intimate secrets of its past.

'Life Is Suite' is currently being exhibited at Cherry Picked, in Royal Exchange (see the Cherry Picked link below).
