The brief required me to design the end of year catalogue for the textile students studying at the Falmouth College of Arts. They asked for a simple, cost effective design which would easily show off their work but also reflect the values and personality of the textile course.
With a budget of £2500 for 500 catalogues to be printed and bound - they required the catalogue to have an attractive cover to make it stand out from other univeristy catalogues. It was up to me to design the layout of the spreads inside the catalogue considering grid systems, type, colour and white space.
The cover was handcut for the mock up shown, but if it was put into production it would be die cut. As asked, the cover reflects the personality of the course - a loud bunch of students with plenty to shout about (reflected in the bright neon green colour) - The die cut cover design is small and delicate to signify the close knit group of people taking the textile course. When you open the book, the sunlight shines through the die cut revealing shadows onto the green page beneath.
