    In Skarstedt Gallery’s latest exhibition catalogue for KAWS: Blackout, I made dynamic use of the raw modernism of Maison, juxtaposed with Janson Text. Blackout presents the artist’s new work at their London gallery space. Designed at Punkt, the publication is case bound with a black edged book block, gloss foiled typography on Silktouch Nuba, printed in eight colours. For more images, see the posts on Instagram (@punktdotcom).

    The printing was done in the UK by Generation Press. Using 8 colours, blending custom mixed fluorescents into the litho process because the artist’s colours are so vivid that they are technically out of gamut range of a traditional litho press, the results are as close to seeing the works with the naked eye as you can get.

    The typography is restrained and plays a supporting role to KAWS’ artwork but is highly considered nonetheless.
