Can an exhibition catalog capture and provide the physical excitement of a moment while honoring tradition, the showcased typographic artistry and artists individual conceptual narratives? By taking a UI approach to the book's design we capture the physical energy of being one of the 1000+ attendees discovering new works at the opening reception.
Each year Firebelly redefines this task by guiding the reader's attentiveness in an effort to honor and celebrate each of the canonized artists. The studio’s third Typeforce catalogue explores new heights in fundamentals by uniting history with the discovery of contemporary methods. Honored typographic traditions, simple mark making and hand-carved stone forms are complementedwith emerging glimmers of light, moments of resounding reflection and bursting brilliance.
Typographic and design attention, conceptual and craft vigilance, production and paper effects used throughout this volume; these maneuvers were meant to inspire, challenge and encourage a stronger connection across a designer's ideas and the material production.
