Nothing I Know Belongs to Me

A publication celebrating the beloved Sydney design studio’s ten fruitful years of practice. 

This handsome volume features a carefully collected set of works from the first ten years of Sydney based creative studio Christopher Doyle & Co., showcased on over 150 pages. The studio specialises in visual and verbal identity, creative direction, campaigns and digital design. The publication brings together the studio’s favourite music covers, posters, trademarks and identities created over the past decade.

The title Nothing I Know Belongs to Me references studio principal Christopher Doyle’s love of the thoughts of Paul Arden, “If you give away everything you have, you are left with nothing. This forces you to look, to be aware, to replenish. Ideas are open knowledge”. And that's what Doyle has done here, sharing his insightful thoughts about the book’s key content chapters of music, posters, trademarks and identity, along with a candid conversation between himself and fellow designer Gabby Lord.

Nothing I Know Belongs to Me presents the studio’s signature graphic style, employing a striking use of the written word in combination with typography and photography. Often irreverent, always intelligent, Christopher Doyle & Co. have a habit of distilling communication in curious and beautiful ways. These works exhibit the diversity of companies and individuals who have entrusted the studio, from the worlds of theatre, music, architecture, cuisine, visual arts, film and photography, with clients including The Jezebels, Huch, Sembla, Hay, Ortto, Deluca and Theatre Royal Sydney.

Founder and Creative Director Christopher Doyle is an internationally recognised designer with over 18 years experience. His work has been used as the basis for educational material and has appeared in feature articles for Desktop, Creative Review and Grafik Magazine, and has won numerous international awards including a D&AD Yellow Pencil Award. In 2011 his work was selected as part of Graphic Design: Now In Production, an exhibition co-organised by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.
