Founders Grotesk & X-Condensed in use for “Compulsion” by Adriaan Mellegers from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Catalogue designed for L.A. based photographer Alex Prager. The catalogue presents Alex's latest body of work, named ‘Compulsion’. The catalogue is designed with the Founders Grotesk typeface, designed by Kris Sowersby. The catalogue is swiss bound and covered by a dust jacket that is also a poster. The cover is printed in deep black and the white typography is covered in a thick spot varnish. The catalogue was presented at three openings in L.A., New York and London.
This is a very immediate, tense use of Founders. I admire the bold use of scale, one of the simplest—and best—methods to create strong typographic contrast. I suggest visiting Adriaan’s site to view the full-sized images!
