It was essential that the design of this catalogue be sympathetic to the work of this contemporary artist. The halftone dot was chosen as an approach for the cover as this technique has been one constant in the artist’s multifaceted career. The yellow color sleeve was incorporated as a way to reference the many layers in this artist’s practice, and the use of one of the Chorus faces on the cover was a humorous nod to the visitor experience. A spot-UV varnish was used on the cover to give the image a three-dimensional quality similar to his works.
Sculpturer’s autobiographical album of painting collected his sculpture works and also recorded his artistic development. The keynote of the book is succinct composition and elegant color, which can build moderate and natural narrative. In the publication design, complicated designing signs were abandoned, controlling the space between words, arrangement of pictures directly, using white space to control the speed of reading…showing the author’s sculpture works and art experience. Readers can feel author’s true feeling from the pages when reading.
The design takes into consideration that the book is divided into 3 parts, each having sub-parts. Each of the 3 parts and their sub-parts are treated differently as chapter openers. The challenge was to treat each type of content differently without creating too many varied styles and treatments. The concept was to create a book that is easy to read while paying minute attention to typographic details for the narrative.
