Massachusetts College of Art and Design approached us to design exhibition catalogs for two of their shows, Encircling the World and Seeing the Elephant. The exhibition catalogs were sent to exhibition participants and library collections. We’re always excited to work with Massart since 50% of our team members are alumni.
Encircling the World
The Encircling the World exhibition featured international artists whose work is rooted in scientific inquiry. We worked with Massart to design an intricate laser-cut cover to feature one of the key pieces from the show.
Seeing the Elephant
The Seeing the Elephant exhibition featured contemporary artists whose work explores a wide range of topics facing India today. Neon Pantones inspired by the artists were used throughout the catalog and culminate on the cover in the form of an abstract elephant.
Showcasing the artist’s work in the best possible light is an important consideration for fine art catalog design. We wanted to create eye-catching books that promote the art without distracting from it. Using shapes, sizes and print production elements inspired by their themes, we were able to create clean, distinctive pieces to complement the work itself.
