*Lettering for the Book Cover
Fictional exhibition catalog project for Mexican mural artist, Diego Rivera, who is known for his international mural movement and communist revolutionary theory. This exhibition’s theme is the “duality”, which means his life and art commitment.
The book design is a typography extension of “duality”. The color red represents his revolutionary activities, while yellow represents his life as a painter and husband. To enhance the experience of reading, the scanned texture of the canvas and his painting are applied to the imagery. Oversized dimension (11 x 16) of the book provides a better experience of viewing his fresco works.
