The designer choice of the objects to be used as stalls, the way of displaying, the “daily design” of the handwritten signs and the relationship between people and objects, are the most prominent features the book want to show. The design of the book also well conformed to the creator’s intention- “simply a presentation”. The whole book is divided into eight chapters:: location, market, signs, stalls, oral accounts, goods, price and vendors according to the elements of a local market. The idea is to minimize the design and restore the scene of the marketplace by every independent chapter.
Wanja textbooks are designed to convey the brand message of bringing happiness to everyone. They are designed with vividly rendered graphics and Minecraft stylized characters that visually represent the Powerbox Learning System, which highlights and organizes study contents with boxes. The Wanja’s brand book includes a design guide that clarifies the Wanja identity to create synergized products. As a result, Wanja books have been created to carry a consistent design throughout the entire series.
This book sheds new light on the link between the individual and society in the modern age in analogy with that of the society and university. It’s minimalistic design helps it blend with the home interior and bookshelf. The pure white appearance is suitable for a research book as it evokes a rational sensibility. The motif of two overlapping circles reflects the book’s theme of the individual-society link. A special QR code on the back cover allows easy access to e-books on digital devices.
The monograph is made in close collaboration with Tadao Ando Architect and Associates. The design is inspired by Ando's poetics. Covers of the book are based on his landmark signature – concrete with visible traces of formwork – the recorded process of genesis that becomes a shaping quality and reflects Ando’s spirit by a minimalistic and purified form. Use of tracing paper at the beginning of each chapter gives an impression of airiness and play of light and shadow, which evoke the gradual sensory adaptation provided by the design of the architect.
The 5-part publication is a folk song book containing 1100 songs with notes and lyrics from the Pszczyna region in Poland, intended for folk choirs, ensambles and musicians. The design is inspired by the manuscript and typewriter effects. The names of chapters are printed on bleeds and represent typewriting errors crossovers (“xxx”) visually similar to folkwear patterns. The use of 3 colors (dark burgundy, blue and violet) refers to the ink used in manuscripts. 5 notebooks in a common etui are handy to use when singing and easily photocopyable, due to the a4 format.
For the design of the Abraidi white book, Laika created abstract illustrations that suggest clippings of a world map. However, the cutouts are geometric and irregular, spreading through the publication. Purposely, the cutouts are in shades of green and refer to the colors of the Brazilian flag. Distributed throughout the book, the same principle of irregular clippings is applied to the pictures, fleeing from the traditional rectangular frame of images. The book was printed with an added metallic gray color, which gives a certain sobriety to the book as opposed to the vibrant shades of green.
