Liverpool School of Architecture commissioned finklab to design and art direct the forthcoming issue of their school journal. finklab worked closely in collaboration with Martin Winchester to establish an appropriate format for the publication, and due to the nature of the content, broad range of articles and content, we developed an approach which attempted to create a sense of calm between energetic chunks of information which allowed the different chapters to breathe and co-exist without overwhelming visual friction. finklab proposed that the school's architectural spaces should provide the framework and backdrop to the content and so a series of photographs were targeted as relevant chapter headings. within the layout simple architectural qualities were exploited, notably, the use of the golden section to orchestrate page layout. A method helped greatly by adopting A4 cut square proportion, within which the classic grid was flipped, rotated and transposed to provide a notion of individuality within an overall system. It was important that the aesthetic of the publication 112 pages offered inspiration and delight within it's complex and varied content. The project was completed over a 9 month period and was executed using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop software.
