About the project
Myslet město (Think City)
Lucie Stejskalovás “Myslet město” (Think City) book focuses on urbanism, specifically via two different approaches – on the one hand Laissez-faire, aka free and unattached urbanism, on the other hand strictly sophisticated planning. Even the graphic design of the publication reflects these two directions.
In the spirit of Laissez-fair, we produced a script that randomly chooses the weight of the font within one large font family. The second approach is then represented via sophisticated infographics. We used a raster script on a large number of graphs and maps in the book, that visually unifies the various backgrounds. In the context of reducing the already rich visual content of the book, we used only two colors for the print – Pantone green and black.
The book has received the “Book of the Year” award, by Typodesign Klub.
