This publication was designed by design company Thirst to promote color 8 UV press. Rick Valicenti’s design juxtaposes Francois Robert’s photographic alphabet, the publication takes its theme from president Obama’s speech upon receiving a nobel peace prize.

The simplicity of this print is almost as bold as the colour palette, the clash of blood red and jet black create a tourment of angst for the viewer. Thinking visually about my publication I intend to re-create something similar, a piece that captures the readers attention but leaves them questioning the piece there after. Along with the collaboration of the horrifying photographic type faces this publication reaches for and creates an un nerving atmospheric.
