'Shine' Book

Format: Book (softcover)

Client: The University of Lethbridge

Agency: Reality Engine

Designer: A. Kelle
 

Year: 2016


This is a piece I worked on during my time at Reality Engine, as the in-house Graphic Designer. The University of Lethbridge was a client, and they asked us to design to mail-out piece for their alumni. 

As it happened, the book ended up arriving in my mailbox at home - I was living with a graduate of the school at the time. 

 

SHINE

I can't take credit for the creative concept behind this work - the 'shine' theme was derived from the school's motto fiat lux or let there be light. That being said, I was responsible for the production of the piece, which meant a lot of 'shining-up' in Photoshop. I worked closely with my Creative Director and with the client to achieve the right-degree of fabulous.

 A couple spreads in the book really took advantage of the grid.
