    Sotheby’s Creative Team art directed the branding and marketing collateral for the Bowie/Collector auctions at Sotheby’s in London, November 2016. The main logotype was designed using Requiem Fine and supporting text was set in the Mercury Text G1 family. This look and feel was applied across the global marketing campaign which included a whole array of items such as invitations, advertising, catalogues, postcards, digital media as well as exhibition graphics.

      The lowercase /c in Requiem is quite something to behold.
