Each year AIGA Chicago produces a retrospective book given out at its Annual Members Meeting. The Firebelly Design studio was asked to design the 2010-2011 year's piece around the theme of boundaries. In looking for conceptual thought to drive visual direction, we defined the term and explored this meaning through form and space while designing the book.
"Boundaries", the shifting lines that divide space and define borders. Through interpretation and reflection boundaries are in a constant state of change, setting new limits and breaking previous constraints. They form our creative space by separating this from that.
In the Snapshot book, we made use of a spot sand-trapping varnish, a spot florescent and a wraparound cover band listing every member of the Chicago Chapter.
