Art direction and design of all auction
and exhibition catalogues in London and New York

2006–2009

‘Their latest sale, Design, takes place on 12th June in New York and is further proof they’re the coolest outfit on the auction scene. The die cut, Newson-inspired catalogue is beautiful enough to merit auctioning itself. Traditional auction catalogues suffer slightly by being a bit dowdy; in some cases (and no names obviously) you can almost smell the mothballs through the paper. But Phillips’ catalogue is a world apart, designed by hip London outfit John Morgan studio and proof that well-lit, well-styled photographs only show the lots off better.’ (Wallpaper magazine online, June 2008)
