Christiaan Conradie – I Took My Love Across the Sea
Artist and good friend Christiaan Conradie approached me with the task of designing a book to represent his Art. The challenge was to tell the story of his development, but also to catalogue his body of work. The story begins in Cape Town and travels to Barcelona where the artist’s work began to blossom. In an effort to incorporate the ocean, something very dear to Christiaan, I created a typographic code developed from a close study of naval signals. The success of this code meant it was developed into an identity.
Scope of work: Book design
