Anniversary publicationTo celebrate their 25th Anniversary, CABS commissioned Ocean to design a book. In it is a collection of forward-thinking articles from business leaders, policy-makers and business academics. Each author takes a unique view on how business schools can remain relevant and adapt in an unpredictable business and economic climate disrupted by nationalism, social inequality and rapid technological innovation. The book includes personal contributions from Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive of WPP, and Carolyn Fairbairn, director general of the CBI. Ocean wanted to create something that was serious, had impact and authority. All imagery was kept to black and white and layouts made use of a good balance of white space and written content. Articles where punctuated from time to time with double page images to allow the reader time to pause. It was lunched at the CABS Annual Conference.
Conference brandingEach year, the CABS hold four annual conferences and Ocean were asked to design a logo for each. The logos had to include the title of the conference, the year which could be updated annually and an image or icon that would reflect the tone and audience of each event. Other considerations were that the logos had to look distinctive and at the same time only use CABS brand values and colours, work at different sizes both in print and digital media and also be legible in black and white. Below are the final individual results for each.
