THE HEART OF THE MATTER
Illustrated here are approaches to the larger, more
substantial visual communication projects incorporating
and structuring large amounts of information, such
as text-heavy editorial and web publishing, and visual
branding systems for multicomponent product packaging.
Well-chosen imagery and complex typographic structure
are combined into layouts that will satisfy the most
demanding client.
