Everyone wants to find their place, and the full-bleed photography of students and campus make it easy to visualize where one’s place may be. Subdued in style but filled with nice touches like varnish and perfect binding, this viewbook lets the content speak for itself.

[Ed.’s Note: The cover uses Soft Touch overall varnish which is a great and affordable way to mimic the feel of Plike (plastic-like) paper. — Armin]

Project Description

This viewbook, produced for Victoria College, one of the oldest universities in Canada with alumni that include filmmaker Norman Jewison and writer Margaret Atwood, unifies an outreach package that has historically been made up of many individual pieces developed by different departments. Vic is a small liberal arts college within the University of Toronto, and it's small-size and close-knit community paired with a commitment to academic excellence, distinguish it's student experience. The book features photographs by Toronto photographer Paul Orenstein, that reveal Vic's personable and intellectual community through informal portraits and profiles of students and faculty. Production finishes and perfect-binding make sure to distinguish it from the brochures of competing institutions.

Production Lesson(s)

This was an ambitious project for my client as they have no comparable piece in their communications materials. It required that they develop a new internal development process and inspire faith on the part of their stakeholders. In my experience with institutional clients, these internal production processes are critical to the success of communications projects. Often specific projects such as this one are the catalyst for growth and positive change.”
