Editorial design, typography & art direction
Design and typeset Brand Perfect’s research about the Internet of Things for print and digital devices. Art-direct illustrations.
Create a design based on the modular grid of Brand Perfect’s parent company Monotype. Scale it down to work across different devices.
I chose black foil-blocking for the cover to give it a tactile finish. The typography on the front cover relates to the inside titles.
I art-directed Laura Barnard’s
illustrations, based on the concepts of technology diminishing the difference between physical and digital objects, and devices talking to each other.
The article on machine translation demanded a variation to the design to make it stand out. Part of this task was image research to communicate the article’s message visually.
Grid and typography
The modular grid allows for text and image to be displayed in an interesting way. I combined serif and sans-serif typefaces Ysobel and DIN Next, and used pull quotes to pick out key information.
I scaled down the print design for desktop, mobile and tablet screens using the modular grid. This ensured the design was consistent across different devices.
