Hyperkit Newsletter

September 2016

Design studio Hyperkit, established in 2001, is the collaboration between husband-and-wife Kate Sclater and Tim Balaam.

Sar — The Essence of Indian Design

Published by Phaidon, this book about design in India features both traditional and contemporary objects. The book is split according to context such as ‘Wearing’, ‘Coming & Going’ and ‘Eating & Drinking’. The cover design is screenprinted in gold, and it has a pink cloth spine reminiscent of the sari.


Christopher Farr Cloth

We have designed and developed a new website for this textile company, featuring over 800 contemporary and historic cloth and wallpaper designs by a roster of designers. The collection can be filtered according to designer, colour and use, and viewed ‘in-situ’.


Rupert Sanderson

We have been working on a brand refresh for this shoe designer which has recently been applied to packaging, including shoe boxes and bags. We also design the twice-yearly lookbooks which showcase the new collection.


‘Flavour’ by Ruby Tandoh

We designed and art directed this second book of Ruby’s (following ‘Crumb’ in 2014). It is published by Chatto & Windus with photography by Charlotte Bland.


Viewfinders — Thoughts on Visual Design Research

Authored by STBY, this publication discusses the use of film and photography in visual design research, and assembles a range of examples.


Contemporary Art Society publication

This is the third in a series of annual publications that we have designed which outlines the acquisitions made by the Contemporary Arts Society on behalf of a range of galleries and museums.


Gallery 1957

We have been working with this gallery in Ghana since their opening in March this year, and this catalogue accompanies the third exhibition, ‘Yellow is the Colour of Water’, by Jeremiah Quarshie.


Knole Brewhouse

Continuing our work at the National Trust property Knole in Sevenoaks, we have recently designed interpretation for the new Brewhouse Café. A series of historical portraits of servants and estate workers are reproduced and mounted to a powder-coated metal frame which floats off the original brickwork. Background information and captions are laser-etched into ash panels.


Authenticity has always been at the heart of our approach. Clients come from a wide range of sectors and are typically entrepreneurial in nature. We work collaboratively with them on designs that aid the communication of their ideas, allowing them to become a genuine part of everyday life.

We work with a hand-picked roster of photographers, illustrators, printers, technical developers, joiners and others to realise our designs.
