A guide to the largest cultural network of Flanders
Each year Davidsfonds, the largest cultural network of Flanders, publishes a guide to present themselves to new members and to prompt existing members to renew their membership. Besides an overview of the organisation and their partnerships, it contains a large selection of books for members to choose from (as part of their membership renewal). Since 2011 I've been the main designer of these cultural guides and their derivatives, working closely with the Davidsfonds editorial team. Each guide has a new theme and look. My main goals for the layout are clarity, attention to detail and consistency. To bring each theme to life, we hire a different illustrator or photographer to create the main visuals.
Jacques & Lise
For this years theme, neighbours, we asked the talented Jacques & Lise to illustrate the cover and 5 full-pages for the 5 main sections. They also drew some additional, loose figures for me to scatter across my layout so we could end up with a consisted look throughout the guide and other campaign items. To further accomplish this goal, I consistently used a similar colour palette and selected typefaces that work particularly well with their illustration style.
