World of Giving

Daniella Spinat and Daniel Koppich, Seattle, Washington, 2009

Description

World of Giving investigates the motivations for why we give and offers examples of individuals, foundations, governments, multinationals and NGOs in global philanthropy. The design responds to the client’s desire to produce a visually rich reading experience out of text-driven content. The book is composed of eight chapters that roughly correspond to eight equally apportioned color-coded divisions. We allowed these parts to flow in and out of phase with each other as the content expanded and contracted into its final form. By highlighting the give and take between the space allotted for the content and the space required by the content, the book’s structure illustrates the dynamic relationship between supply and demand.

Juror Notes

The division of sections where the treatment of typography changes color and the contemporary, economical design synchronizes the book’s intent to illuminate the notion of giving.
