The Forty Story of Pentagram: A Narrative Portfolio Reel

This video cleverly celebrates Pentagram's 40th anniversary and also functions as a unique—no to mention impressive—portfolio reel. Told as the story of boy born and maturing (rather quickly) over the corse of the design consultancy's existence, it shows "how his life has been tracked (and kerned) by forty years of Pentagram design," typography and branding.

Also notable is the coordinating publication Pentagram's 40th Anniversary, which features a series of attractive posters designed by partners since the now trans-Atlantic firm's inception and coordinates with the brand's style and color scheme. Pentagram currently has partners in London, New York, San Francisco, Berlin and Austin.
