Carcanet Press launches rebrand ahead of 50th anniversary

Carcanet Press is launching a rebrand to mark the beginning of the publisher’s 50th anniversary year.

The Manchester-based publisher’s new branding includes a new, simplified black and white logo and colour scheme, which are reflected on the website, new graphics and new cover artwork for publications. Carcanet plans to announce a series of celebratory events to mark the anniversary soon. 

Carcanet founder and m.d. Michael Schmidt said: “Carcanet is turning 50 but it has always felt much younger, a series of reinventions rather than a stable thing. Emblematic of these reinventions is the ‘new look’ -- our ‘rebranding’, but that seems out-of-place when talking about so peculiar a creature as Carcanet. During the year the new look will spread not only through the books but through the e-letter, the website and everything else associated with this reinventive enterprise.”
