Graphic Brutalism is the outcome of my bachelor's dissertation project, exploring the involvement and understanding of brutalism within our industry; it features input from designers and studios such as Mane Tatulyan, Tim Tijink, Daniel Zenker and Studio Quatrième Étage. The cover design sets the tone for the book and its contents, aiming to emulate the texture and dimples of the large concrete structures often associated with brutalism. In production, the typeface choices of Neue Montreal and Editorial Neue were screenprinted first, before the dimples were pressed into the cloth material that encases the 52-page book lying within.
