    paper cutout, three-dimensional letterforms,
    books, posters, flyer, animation

  • My design 
    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
    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.
