The Stone Twins
The Stone Twins are twin brothers Declan and Garech Stone (born 1970, Dublin). The work of their Amsterdam-based design agency is noted for its unconventional, engaging and witty qualities and has been recognised by industry awards such as D&AD, Dutch Design Awards and European Design.
Passionate and assertive about design, The Stone Twins are the authors of Logo R.I.P., a book that commemorates 50 defunct logos. Declan and Garech regularly contribute to design publications and blogs such as Eye Magazine, the International Review of Graphic Design, DesignWeek, and for 10 years had a monthly column in the Dutch magazine Communicatie. In addition, the duo was Head of the ‘Man and Communication’ department at Design Academy Eindhoven from 2008–2013. They currently provide lectures and workshops on visual communication at several international design schools. The Stone Twins work is included in the permanent collections of the Cooper-Hewitt New York, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and their parents’ living room.
De Stone Twins zijn tweelingbroers Declan en Garech Stone. Het werk van hun ontwerpbureau in Amsterdam staat bekend om zijn onconventionele, uitnodigende en grappige kwaliteiten en is erkend bij uitreikingen van brancheprijzen zoals D&AD, Dutch Design Awards en European Design. De Stone Twins presenteren ‘Double Dutch Irish Blarney’, een pocketboek dat de vele culturele en sociale verschillen tussen Nederland en Ierland viert.
ID2015 commissioned The Stone Twins to develop a concept that reflects their perception and unique perspective of Irish and Dutch culture. The resulting booklet, Double Dutch – Irish Blarney is an object to covet. It offers humorous observations on the nuances and idiosyncrasies of Dutch and Irish life.
Linen cover with fluorescent inks and silver thread stitching.
