    The Cube is an independent microcinema and arts centre which each month has a unique and varied programme of events from independent film to music gigs and stand up comedy. The Cube produces an accompanying programme that aspires to attract attention and to communicate clearly the upcoming events and relevant information. A programme was needed for November 2014 during which the cinema was undertaking a sci-fi season. The idea for the final design was to create an interpretation of the cinema’s recognisable ‘hand & cube’ logo whilst also giving the overall programme a subtle Science Fiction feel that wasn’t overpowering or clichéd. An illustrated hand was created for the cover which evolves to an other worldly version as the programme is opened, showing a mysterious levitation of the cube. A bold, monochromatic structure was coupled with the use of tonal inversion to create a contrasting journey through the programme’s pages. Both the use of black and white and a monospaced font was used, with the intention to subtly link back to the Golden Age of Science Fiction Cinema, for example black and white Sci-fi mystery movies and top secret typewritten documents.
