International Society of Typographic Design – ISTD 2015

Commendation Award

This publication focusses on all the important conclusions Darwin drew from his research & discoveries but also highlights the  influential character of his book „On the Origin of Species“.
My creative intention is to typographically interpret the key historical text from Charles Darwin in a contemporary and dynamic way. The use of a flexible grid and two very different typefaces breaks the stereotype of traditional scientific publications. Complexity becomes attractive and not discouraging due to the clear typographic hierarchy and dynamic rhythm.
