OK-RM is an independent studio based in London, founded in 2008 by Oliver Knight & Rory McGrath. Building a reputation through a distinctive perspective on design and art direction within contemporary art, culture, and commerce. A dedicated content driven approach with a grounding in conceptual thinking form the essential foundations of the studio. Recent commissions include the exhibition design and campaign for Fear and Love (Design Museum), visual identities for Manus × Machina (The Met, New York), the British Pavilion in Venice, and Under the Same Sun (Guggenheim, New York) as well as book projects with artists Fos and Shezad Dawood. Our ongoing collaboration with the REAL Foundation continues with the creative direction of REAL Review now in its second issue. Between 2011–15 the studio was responsible for the visual identity and creative direction of the Strelka Institute. In early 2015, OK-RM founded InOtherWords, a publishing imprint creating books and other printed matter in close collaboration with artists, writers, galleries and other cultural protaganists. Rory McGrath and Oliver Knight have acted as visiting critics and participated in numerous international conferences on design related subjects including; Werkplaats Typografie, Whitechapel Gallery, RISD, ECAL, Elisava and REDO.
