University of Calgary

50th Anniversary Publication

This highly visual, 12×12″, 80-page commemorative book was designed for the university’s 50th anniversary. The use of metallic gold was used in the 50th branding, as symbolic of that milestone.

The tone-on-tone cover had a velvety matte finish and the typography was accentuated with gold foil. The interior featured stunning custom photography, alongside archival images, gold ink and foil. 

The objective was to have an airy and elegant feel with multiple access points for storytelling and pacing. The blocks of content are broken up by beautiful images, quotes and section breaks to help the viewer through the piece.
