Krannert Art Museum: Selected Works

Studio Blue, Chicago, Illinois, 2008

Description

The Krannert Art Museum guidebook is grounded in the idea of the museum as an intriguing destination on the campus of the University of Illinois. Both museum and book reveal bits of their stories to visitors, inviting participants to follow the progress of a serial narrative. The materials create a tactile experience in conjunction with visceral letterforms that reflect the motion of a story told over time. Designed to be sensory and engaging both visually and as an object, the book is a little mysterious, as it subtly reveals the word art just as art is experienced and interpreted within the museum’s walls. 

Juror Notes

The small inserts and the typography on the divider pages were a nice surprise to the otherwise straightforward layout.
