Sort by: Thu May 23 Our design research had given us a deep insight into the things that medical professionals really valued about the BNF. We had observed them stroking the large edition number on the cover, and knew that the colour of each book reassured them that they were using the latest possible drug information.

We looked back at the history of the BNF and took inspiration from the original design, but introduced a new, vibrant colour palette.

We utilised the award winning sans serif FF Dagny because of its presence, modern aesthetic, legibility and range of weights. The combination of bright new colour palette and modern typeface created a cover that looked towards the future, while still honouring the history of the publication.

The standard size better fits alongside other books on a bookshelf, and will also reduce future printing costs.

We utilised the secondary colours from our new colour palette and designed a distinctive cover and spine layout, to ensure the BNFC could be easily differentiated at a glance.
