Type and Editorial project
With a budget of £2500 for 500 catalogues to be printed and bound - they required the catalogue to have an attractive cover to make it stand out from other univeristy catalogues. It was up to me to design the layout of the spreads inside the catalogue considering grid systems, type, colour and white space.
The cover was handcut for the mock up shown, but if it was put into production it would be die cut. As asked, the cover reflects the personality of the course - a loud bunch of students with plenty to shout about (reflected in the bright neon green colour) - The die cut cover design is small and delicate to signify the close knit group of people taking the textile course. When you open the book, the sunlight shines through the die cut revealing shadows onto the green page beneath.
The smaller image is either another piece of work by the student, or a zoomed in shot of the piece shown in the full bleed image. Each student wrote a short statement about the work shown. Page numbers are designed to be just above the users thumb while flicking through the catalogue to allow the user to navigate through it easily.
