moving into the half title/title/contents/introduction i have introduced color instead of the grey, pretty sure this will not be the final color, for now it’s a place holder, i dig the vibrancy but it needs toned down. still working with reflecting the lines and perpendicular angles seen in koenig’s architecture. still need to tweak my body copy to fit a bit better on the introduction page. but as i continue working and reworking the content i also need to keep in mind creating drama and sticking to my concept and structuring to the grid. keep going, keep going, focus, keep going, focus, focus, focus.
here is my first round of ideas for an opener, image dominant, and text dominant spreads for the pierre koenig book. i decided to complete the spreads for all of the schwartz house content. with the koenig book i am building off of the architecture’s structure and showcasing it’s details with repetition and overlapping/interrupting images, and adding in formal elements to assist in creating movement across the pages. for my type i am using the family of source sans for it’s clarity with body copy, the variety of weights allow for having headlines/subheads/notes. i still need to go in and fix the scanned images. i think there’s something here, but need to really nail down a key concept. and make sure to not get too cluttered with my compositions, need to keep it streamlined like koenig’s work.
