The mandate of this project was to create a book cover and a preview of the inside spreads based on the contemporary artist Daniel Arsham and his work.
Arsham is best known for his combined interest in architecture, performance and sculpture to create pieces that manipulate and distort our perspective on time, space and structure.
The approach was to create a three-dimensional book cover with laser cut negative letters of his name. The inspiration comes from his work where he builds upon layers and depth, while only using his main colour, white. The spreads are designed with an elegant touch using white space to showcase his work. Similar to the artist's website, it also has a technical feel by using a geometric sans-serif typeface, Replica from the Lineto Foundry.
The outcome of the finished book is a clean and sophisticated art book with a dynamic layout and a graphic style based on Arsham’s work.
