EU Strategic Autonomy: Filling the Gaps : A new momentum for Common Security and Defence Policy - Editorial Design
I was approached to design the cover and layout for a paper on EU Defence policy. During the initial briefing, it was stressed to me not use any imagery that might suggest wars, armies, or security lock downs. In light of these concerns, I took an abstract approach to the design.
Inspired by the paper's title "Filling in the gaps", I thought about filling in gaps in security, as resembling a game of tetris - building the blocks that would protect EU citizens from harm. I played with the composition, incorporating the title and author as "building blocks" in the cover illustration. The tetris motif is repeated throughout the layout design as well. I believe this design succeeds in being both eye catching, and communicating the content of the paper in a concise manner.
