Manchester School of Art Brochure

We picked up a brochure for the new Manchester School of Art [MMU] at their launch, and were very impressed with their approach. The design is very minimalist, however there’s a twist; as it can be started from either end –  one side dedicated to the history of the institution and the other to the launch of the new building [represented by powerful images alone, except for a brief foreword and introduction].It also harnesses the use of textures and embossing as important mediums in physical [rather than digital/on-screen] graphic design. I think its always a good idea to look into other pieces of work as it helps inspire and spark ideas.
