Project Description

Enigma is a fashion brand and they attempt to strike a balance between ordinary and voguish, aiming to develop a new taste of fashion. We designed a catalogue for their 2011 FW Collection and create the theme "Skim of Skin" to showcase their new collections. We collaborated with the Enigma design team and we used crow, feather, clock and time code number to link up the fashion shots to become a story.

Production Lesson(s)

Don't always use white type on a black background, we try hot stamping black and embossing. ”
