For over a decade, and almost in secret, Scott Avett has amassed an impressive body of artwork. Though known primarily as a member of The Avett Brothers, Scott’s formal training was in visual art. We designed and co-edited a monograph that catalogs his work and documents his creative process.
The typographic palette was carefully chosen to balance a host of tonal qualities and specific use cases. GT Super Display, a striking contemporary serif from Grilli Type, provides the lion’s share of typographic personality. Its sibling, GT Super Text, imparts an appropriate formal quality to the essays. With its simple, rounded, typewriter-esque forms, Optimo’s Hermes Condensed provides a stark counterpoint to GT Super’s razor sharp serifs. Dia, a blocky, quirky sans from Schick Toikka, is peppered throughout the book in titles and headings. Dia’s lighter weight is paired with GT Super Text in interviews to provide a visual tone-of-voice change from interviewer to respondent.
