Buckley’s Heroes was a publication designed to celebrate the rich history, many achievements and clever people – past and present – that make Buckley Systems the visionary company it is today. This brand book aimed to fill the large, tight-knit workforce with a sense of belonging, pride and unity.
My role was to conceptualise, design and realise most of visual content which also involved illustration and commissioned photography.

The publication was contained by wire-binding that was electroplated in copper. A textured hardcover with foiled detailing echo the materials used in electromagnet production and gave the book a tactile quality.
