I was hired to design several spreads within the Film Guide for the 2018 Outfest Los Angeles Film Festival. Utilizing the year's "circular gradient" key art I utilized several different techniques to harken back to the circles or to fully expose the spread to an entire gradient.
I was in charge of designing and typesetting the right page. I used a nighttime gradient blue/purple to mirror the after party aspect of this particular page while using its complementary color orange/yellow respectively to create a focal point on the page number so it's easier to remember where the page is, almost like a mnemonic device.
I designed and typeset the pages titled "WE'RE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD". Here is an example of where I utilized the text wrap to subtly have the type interact with the circular images I created to pull the design of the key art together.
I designed these two spreads together, combining the techniques mentioned above while retaining a cohesive hierarchy of information.
Here my goal was to showcase the list of donors by really pushing how the typography interacted with the key art but also using words of encouragement and hope from the donors as well.
