Dickson Street Bookshop Branding

Dickson Street Bookshop is a used and out-of-print bookshop. The bookshop is known for its maze-like quality and its vast selection of all variety of books. With this branding project I sought to combine the current classic look of the bookshop with a more modern aesthetic.

We intertwined them to create patterns that took on different shapes and movements applied the patterns.
