Edizioni Ca’ Foscari

Art direction and restyling of the covers

Every year, Ca’Foscari University of Venice publishes several scientific books and magazines in various research fields. Politics, history, art, philology and foreign languages are just a few of the topics covered by their large catalog. The new cover designs shown here break the visual partition between typography and graphics defined in the previous layout: texts, shapes and colours interact with each other, creating a simple yet modern composition. While the design’s degree of abstraction stayed the same, the new graphics became simpler and easier on the eye. Historical, artistic, or cultural context researched in the publications were taken into consideration during the concept phase in order to create remarkable and consistent designs throughout the series.
