Art direction and design of all auction and exhibition catalogues in London and New York from 2006–2009. See the auction catalogues project page here.


‘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)
