Book Design / Brochure

Westcity Wates asked us to design a book to celebrate the completion of their latest landmark development.

The book is structured around the characteristics of the building. Imagery is divided into Light+Space, reflecting the physicality of the building, and Form+Soul, focusing on architectural details and finishing. The typography ranges up and down the page, informing the reader as to which levels within the house the images are from.

The 148 page casebound book features a number of high quality finishes:
Externally, the spine was left on show connecting the cover with the cloth end papers, while the blind-embossed cover was both bold and restrained.

Internally there was a metallic ink overprinted throughout. This was used as a graphic treatment throughout the book, evoking the light that permeates the building so beautifully.
