  • Re-design of Mérleg könyvek book series
    paper cutout, three-dimensional letterforms,
    books, posters, flyer, animation

  • My design 
    consists
    in the re-design of Mérleg könyvek a book series composed mainly of essays in philosophy and aesthetics
    . The overall conception unifying the individual volumes is that every cover features a photograph of a hand-made (folded, crumpled, burnt-out etc.), paper-based letterform composition, making use of the optical
    possibilities
    offered by light/shadow effects.
    The individ
    ual compositions make thematic reference
    to the
    topics discussed in the books. The overall conception
    refers to the mutually facilitating dynamic of idea
    ,
    letter and
    paper in the experience
    of reading.
