The briefing was to create a publication able to relate two distinct subjects (Glass and Butts) in a logical and balanced way. It was decided to link the thematics using color and create a colorful visual layout with images as the main content.
Glass is a very aesthetically pleasing material with a reflective surface that can have impressive results when photographed and is commonly utilized in design objects and artistic installations. Therefore, it was researched and collected a series of artworks and photographs that explored the glass potential.
The “butts” thematic was equally researched in anaesthetic and artistic direction, collecting images of artists or photographers that work with the human body.
The final result is a publication that resembles a color catalogue, where each page is numbered with a specific color hex code presenting photographs of butts and glass matched chromatically. It can be read in multiple ways and even rearranged as it’s bound with rings. The index is an outside acrylic strap that involves the magazine.
