Buddhafield 2016 Programme Brochure
It’s all about the geometry
Within the grid underlying the whole document, in this project I’ve used that as a basis for breaking up the content with geometric shapes. This was partly to draw out visual interest in the document as a whole, but thematically to emphasise the dynamism of Buddhafield.
See the whole Buddhafield 2016 brochure.
I set up a rigorous type hierarchy to ensure that, amidst the dynamism of the composition, the functional underpinning of the document — the publicising of the programme of events — didn’t get lost.
- Event titles, The Serif, part of Lucas de Groot’s Thesis super-family.
- Event details (dates, venue etc.), ITC Flora, designed by Gerard Unger.
- Body text, Praxis, also by Gerard Unger.
- Theme and credits, Snell Roundhand, by Mathew Carter.
Some of the main headings are graphics in their own right. The Buddhafield Festival graphic was a custom designed. The lettering on the Village Retreat spread is by designer-illustrator, Sara Nunan.
