The Beyond is an exhibition catalogue designed by Pentagram / Eddie Opara for a travelling art exhibition (organised by the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art) that explores the links between the art of Georgia O’Keeffe and contemporary art. The catalogue shows works by O’Keeffe and others.
The design employs the graphic motif of a straight, centered line, suggesting a leap or shift from one perspective to another––from the representative to the abstract, from here to the intangible “beyond.” The typography mixes Marr Sans, an eccentric and sharp grotesque (designed by Commercial Type), with Grifo, an expressive, neoclassic serif (by R-Typography). — Pentagram
