Experience design agency LAYER and founder Benjamin Hubert are the subject of an upcoming monograph published by Phaidon and written by design curator and commentator Max Fraser.

LAYER in print

Across seven chronological chapters, the book traces Benjamin’s journey from graduate designer to establishing and subsequently expanding his own studio. In doing so, it offers a candid and insightful account of how to succeed in the highly competitive design industry.

Our Role

LAYER was intimately involved in every stage of bringing the LAYER monograph to life, from layout and cover design, to proof-reading, and material selection. The launch of the book was celebrated with an exhibition created by LAYER at the London Design Festival that took the work from page to stage.

“It’s been 12 years since I started my own studio and seven years since I founded LAYER – and it’s an honour to collaborate with Phaidon and Max Fraser to produce a monograph on the studio’s work to date.”

“It was a challenging yet rewarding process producing the book, and looking back on our work has given us the opportunity to consider the way we work now and in the future.”

“It also gave us insights into how our work has evolved and is a testament to the talent of the team and our creative partners over the years. LAYER remains a work in progress, but this book is an amazing moment to celebrate how far we have come.”
