After 15 years of work in the digital realm, Universal Everything has its first book. What is Universal Everything? is published by Unit Editions in a limited quantity of 2000, each with its own unique cover.

Universal Everything’s creative director Matt Pyke worked closely with the Spin design team of Tony Brook and Claudia Klat to create a book that brings 24 of the studio’s most exciting projects to the printed page – from commissions for the likes of Hyundai to self-initiated projects that keep the studio pushing forward.

The book also includes two essays and extensive interviews throughout, 90 pages of Pyke’s hand-drawn sketches, as well as detailed listings of the studio’s numerous sources of inspiration – from music to literature, places to food.

Every cover of What is Universal Everything? is a one-off, with a different tipped-in image created using software designed to generate random combinations of shapes, colours and sizes with collision detection.
