The editorial design of the graduate catalog of the ÉSAL (art school in Metz, France) is based on two key notions: openness and light. The fluorescent gradients that spread from the heart of the catalog literally highlight the graduates’ work. The composition plays with the white of the page; texts presenting the approach of the young artists are placed opposite to the respective photographs. The school logo (based on similar themes) appears on the cover of the catalog. The sheet separates the reading of the term “École Supérieure d’Art de Lorraine” in order to bring up the word “art”.
The typography combines Messine (Atelier de typographie de l’ÉSAL) with Work Sans (Wei Huang).
