Visual Transformation—David Adjaye ∕ Assignment

Book & poster design

These 2 pieces were developed through studying architect David Adjaye’s building style and then designing the grids, choice of color palettes and typography, and illustrations by using his buildings as reference points. The grid for the poster is based off of Adjaye’s Rivington Place, while the color palette comes from his Elektra house. The book’s grid is a scaled-down version of the poster’s grid and the illustrations for each building are loose interpretations of some of their architectural forms.
Poster 22″×29.3″, Book 7.5″×10.5″
