Provincial Essays

Book Design

Marked by an engagement with the modernist legacy, the Bombast product line is perhaps best understood as the material trace of what is in many ways a very personal learning curve. When we began in this business, we were too young and too inexperienced to know that our dream — participation in a global design culture — was “impossible” from the relative isolation that is our Vancouver home. That we are still at it remains a function of our unwillingness to accept the obvious.
