Graphic designer Helios Capdevila has produced the first graphic commission for the AF’s Tooley St Project Space windows. In celebration of the AF’s 20th anniversary Helios designed a bold typographic treatment for the building’s street-facing windows, communicating the AF’s mission and activities. The windows act as a clear representation of the Foundation’s passion for architecture; an informative chart of the AF’s methods and resources; and new signage for the AF’s headquarters, visible from the River Thames. The design also acknowledged the generosity of all who contributed to the AF’s archive campaign.

Helios Capdevila runs an independent graphic design practice in East London, working on printed materials, books, websites, graphic identities, stationery, typeface design. He trained at Central Saint Martins college of Art and Design.
