Ivorypress Identity

Ivorypress Identity

The Ivorypress logotype was designed as a colophon, a printer's mark that originated in Renaissance printing shops, where a title page would feature the colophon near the bottom of the page.

The logotype assumes its signature like character through a simple manipulation of its Ellington book typeface.

When Ivorypress launched its gallery and bookshop in Madrid, a more consumer orientate subbrand – Ivorypress Art & Books – was developed to promote the gallery programme and one of the finest art and architecture bookshops around.

Client information


Ivory Press is the publisher of limited edition books containing original works of art by modern and contemporary artists.

Each Ivory Press title is the product of a unique creative exchange between the artist and the publisher. This partnership is complemented by the contribution of writers whose literary standing or close connection with the artist adds a further dimension to the books, increasing their collectability.
