I think that editorial design is my favorite part of graphic design. I recently updated my "Art'Chitecture" project on Behance. As you can see, the magazine's layout conveys the idea of architecture by echoing the notions of space and structure visually, in a very simple yet powerful way.

New case study now live:
Lukas/Markus by Kalle Sanner is the result of a photographic project spanning over a decade. Located in the Western Cemetery in Gothenburg, architect Sven Brolid's two mirrored chapels Saint Lukas and Saint Markus were designed and built in the 1960s, an era when Swedish functionalism was at its very peak.
Sanner started photographing Brolid's building over ten years ago, after having discovered the building and site while walking around the area. He was drawn to the building's position and to how all of its materials harmonized.
The book contains an essay, titled Earthbound, by Karl Palmås, who is a Gothenburg-based social researcher, acting as associate professor at Chalmers University of Technology.
The book's clothbound hardcover features an embossing with partial, transparent foil, echoing the iconic facade of Sven Brolid’s building. When hit by light, the partial foil spells out Gothenburg's area code '031', on the back cover. On the front cover, abstract letters form 'VKG', an abbreviation for Västra Kyrkogården which was also Sanner's working title for the project.
Lukas/Markus includes two double foldouts and, while the head-band and endpaper (from G.F Smith) is matched to the chapel's interior textile details, the cloth used for the cover and the sand coloured paper used for the text segment of the book both correspond with the buildings facade. The crematoriums oxidized copper chimney guided the selection of the turquoise silk bookmark.
Lukas/Markus was released on the 6th of May 2018, at Hasselblad Center in Gothenburg, during the finissage of the Hasselblad Foundation's 'Published', a major exhibition on the history of the Swedish photobook. During the release, a panel discussion with Kalle Sanner and Karl Palmås, in conversation about the project, was moderated by curator and writer Niclas Östlind. The book, is co-published by ll'Editions and Blackbook Publications.
The trade edition of the book and the special edition are both available for purchase through the ll'Editions [@lleditions] webshop and from selected retailers around the world.
