Westerdals School project brief: “Make a brochure and a poster and present a quality typeface. Adobe is the client (hypothetically) and the audience group is graphic designers. Do research and make the content. Cutting and pasting is allowed. You are only allowed to use the typeface (no photos, Illustrations etc.) for the design. You can use frames, boxes and lines, as well as any ornaments if they belong to the typeface. All colours are also allowed.”
About the brochure: I picked the classic Adobe Minion Pro because it is easy to read and it reminds me of fairy tale books from when I was a kid. When I made the brochure, I wanted to keep the focus on the typeface, but at the same time present a story about the moon. The idea was to put fictional stories about the moon up against hard facts, to make the brochure more interesting to study. I presented the greek and cyrillic letters by replacing some of them with the letters in the headings. I printed the cover on 300 gram white Scandia paper and the main content on 150 gram off-white Scandia paper to give the finish a “moonlight look”.
