Working with this off-space gallery on their catalog was a great opportunity to incorporate playful typography, while working within the constraints of page count, essay length, equal representation of works, and the ever-dreadful listing of artist CVs.

The idea of mirroring type, combining multiple typefaces and attempting to showcase all artists in a way that was not simply a list of names on the cover. One success is the table of contents, a utilitarian version of the front cover, giving an interaction of sorts to the turning of the page.
More specifically, It was a time that New Orleans was in the spotlight, with the Prospect Biennial and the energized art scene. A sense of urgency was present and motivated us all within this particular community. This is evident in the Good Children poster, a collaborative illustration with artist, Stephen Collier, in attempts to convey a ‘re-birth.’
