Bristol University Press

Invisible Britain case study

Invisible Britain – Portraits of Hope and Resilience is the first venture for Bristol University Press into photography-based publications. Our experience in working with some of the UK’s biggest and most successful publishers gave us the know-how to guide the press through production. The book, which features work of award-winning documentary photographers, has gone onto tour the UK, with accompanying exhibitions and Q&A sessions. It’s cited as an important document in revealing untold stories from people who have been left behind by government policy and austerity.

Bristol University Press

Bristol University Press, and its imprint Policy Press, publish the highest quality scholarship in the social sciences and aligned disciplines. A not-for-profit publisher, who puts integrity before profit, they wanted a bold identity for the newly-formed, over-arching university press brand. Over a year in the making, with lots of stake-holder expectations to mange, the final identity clearly stamped their mark on the academic publishing sector. The initial phase of brand creation led into design and implementation of book, journal and textbook covers for the press, as well as exhibition materials, website, micro sites, a host of marketing material and a twice yearly catalogue that puts Bristol University Press on par with Oxford, MIT and other premier academic publishers.
