This dimensional piece was our first handheld project with imagery and type. Having an informational brochure that you can actually hold creates a unique experience for the viewer. As they open the piece they are revealing the story.
I decided to feature Karl Blossfeldt's for this project with selected biographical info as well as some of his beautiful black and white photography. I designed a system using interval, repeating vertical lines and blocks of color to reveal Karl's story. My goal was to make the photos be the first to stand out and have the text be a supportive and functioanl element.
