AGI Congress Special Project Catalogue

Client: Alliance Graphique Internationale
Art director: Angus Hyland

Dialogue was the theme for the 2013 AGI Congress which took place in London. 130 designers were asked to respond to the Special Project brief of designing a teacup and saucer to be shown in an exhibition at the Congress.

With typographic interpretations of works from George Orwell, Henry James, Lewis Carroll and Marcel Proust, alongside photoessays by Angela Moore documenting London’s oldest and most treasured tearooms; the accompanying catalogue contains classic texts celebrating the quintessential British pastime of drinking tea with contemporary interpretations on the topic of dialogue.
