Case Study

A beautiful looking catalogue for Manchester School of Art. The sections of the catalogue are punctuated by alternative grey printed sections which has been used for title pages and helps to differentiate from artist pages that have been printed onto the white uncoated body of the catalogue. The cover design features black foiling and debossing onto GF Smith’s Nomad Grey and the effect is rather lovely.  A combination of raw industrial feel with slick modern.  It makes a big impact on the reader, it has an overall feel of a personal notebook and a keepsake product.
