Enoki publishes the WIP book each year in December. The 2nd issue is currently in dispatch. We seek out all our intentions and missing files in this tactile book of expressions, excursions and passionate pursuits that make our world as infinite as possible. We draw more and more out of the world we experience through our projects and personal life. There is infinity in everything we do and the WIP book is a salute to that. We hope you enjoy it. Made especially for you and us.
When luxury brand Hermes Paris, in collaboration with designboom organised an international graphic design competition to conceive new patterns for use on their ties, Enoki got to work. The selected entry would be put into production by Hermes, a most exciting opportunity. Enoki produced five entries, all of which are displayed here. Solutions range from typographic to 'H' motifs to playing on the equestrian theme in a most abstract way.
Hermes One: Origami horse folding diagram used as patterning.
Hermes Two: Abstract 'H' or graphic travel pathways.
Hermes Three: Abstract 'H' Tie Fighters (Star Wars).
Hermes Four: Name repeat influenced by architectural structures.
Hermes Five: Name repeat graffiti for the urban traveller.

The Adelaide Fringe is an arts festival that is having its 50th Anniversary in 2010. Every year the event organisers ask for submissions for the Fringe Poster Competition. The chosen entry then becomes the visual identity for that year's event.
'Chained Dancing Bear Cut Loose'
DESIGN BY JUDD CRUSH [ENOKI]
Communicating unbridled creativity. The bear in the poster represents the Fringe Event, its eye and mouth are made out of the numeral '50' to represent the 50 years of existence. The love heart roar is music to our ears. 'What a Magnificent Beast'.
'Lucy in the Sky'
DESIGN BY SUSANNA BILARDO [ENOKI]
"50" individuals joining hands representing the essence of the Fringe: universal collaborations; families + individuals getting together; plunging into new environments; places + colours; the use of recylced materials; hand-made; for the people by the people, celebration of expression.

When 'Rail' was developed, a sister typeface was developed to work with it to soften its hard edges. 'Rail Swashes' takes inspiration from leafy surrounds. It has a provincial style that is warm and inviting. Together with 'Rail', 'Rail Swashes' adds a subtle visual complexity, and speaks gently about the interaction between man-made and organic forms.
