Gradients can be a visual crutch for designs that lack their own strength but, here, the gradients are what give this piece that visual kapow, with a lovely mix of silver-ink gradient on the cover, color gradient on the spine, AND more gradients in the gutter of the book.

Project Description

University of Pécs (PTE) is the first University in Hungary, founded in 1367. In this prestigious institution, the Art Faculty is fairly new, located inside the beautifully renewed and reconditioned old Zsolnay ceramic factory (now it is called Zsolnay Cultural District). The Faculty is unique in Hungary's art education, because of a very diverse structure: Institute of Fine Arts, Institute of Musical Arts, Institute of Media and Applied Arts, and Doctoral School.

Celebrating the Faculty's 20th jubilee, the publications representing the school, got one unified visual look (book and information brochure).

The concept was to let the artworks speak for themselves. It was very important to show the artworks undisturbed: no letters on pictures, no small pictures, only quadratic full-page and cut-in-half quadrant pictures (the same ratio as one spread). Modern, but moderate graphic elements, clear and strict layout were the design guidelines through the book. There is only grey color in the layout, except one place (actually it is outside of the book), the "eosin" gradient on the spine, which "radiates" inside the first page, it recalls to the past, (eosine was the technique made Zsolnay famous).

Production Lesson(s)

Offset silver gradients were used on the cover. This silver should have the same tone as the grey gradients (offset black) inside the book. The cover was produced more than one week before the rest, that's why comparing and fine adjusting the tone was possible.”
