Building Our Future

File Under: Print, Publication.

For this project I was tasked with creating a template for a museum newsletter. We were provided with the content for two issues and then asked to design. The newsletter would consistently include a Calendar, an On Exhibit section, and an On View section. It would also include a wild card section. When I looked over the pieces from the Harvard University Art Museums, I was struck by the level of saturation and boldness of the colors, as well as the drama of the collection and wanted to incorporate that into my design concept.

Format

I chose to have a beautiful solid for the cover, and then have peep holes which would shift each issue so the art could peer out. I picked a thick, textured paper stock for the exterior, to add a unique tactile experience while reading. The interior is soft matte paper, to contrast with the cover. The dimensions are 6” by 8.5”.
