An arts magazine needed branding and house style that was easily identifiable but could have a different look and feel every issue. 

  • Art direction
  • Design
  • Editorial design
  • Print
  • Typography
  • Layout

The arts magazine and collective Sluice needed branding that was quirky, esoteric, and individual. In response, CHK designed and implemented a bespoke font based on the barcodes found on 35mm film canisters. 

CHK applies this highly conceptual art direction to each issue of the magazine and has won a Creativepool Award for their originality. 

Such are the artistic merits of the design that also Sluice commissions CHK to create associated merchandising for each issue.
