Toward Forming

Forming a new experience of reading.

Sekai Kozuma, the author of this book is working across some different fields as an essayist, an artist, and a curator. We designed the first collection of his articles and essays.

To express the author's thoughts, we designed this book by the elements that are thought to be the opposite. We used the colors, typography, and materials that give readers physical impacts. The book has the extra demand to get people's attention with its cover and edges, but once readers open the book, they can find calm and readable pages. It looks like a paperback, but the actual weight is heavy like a hardcover. With these functions, the book leads the readers to the reading experience in which excitement and sedation are intertwined. We also designed a website and motion graphics for the promotion campaign by the same concept.

美術家/文筆家/キュレーターなどとして多面的に活動する上妻世海氏。私たちは、彼の重要なテキストを集めた論考集 「制作へ」 をデザインしています。

本書のデザインは、彼の理論を視覚言語として反映するために、身体に直接的な作用を強く与えるカラーパレットやタイポグラフィ、マテリアルによって構成されています。ジャケットや小口の過激なアテンションと本文の穏健さ、ペーパーバックのような軽い外観とハードカバーのような実際の重さ、様々な相反する要素のコントラストによって、読者は興奮と鎮静が入り乱れた体験に導かれます。また、書籍の設計に加えて、私たちはプロモーション用のウェブサイト、モーショングラフィックスも同様のコンセプトで設計しています。
