The empty sheet of paper in front of an artist, waiting to be sketched on was the starting point for the concept for the catalogue and design of the exhibition d’RAW at SCHUNCK* in Heerlen. The event showed sketches, drawings and artwork made by street-artists from all over the world. The silver color of graphite is used for the typography and background shadows of the artwork. The flat images get lifted out of the book, to focus more on the idea of paper on paper. All the titles are drawn by hand to give it the sketch-feel. During the opening I did a LIVE performance to finish the second layer of the design for the cover, by spray-painting one big black line over all the books. This underscores the handwork that is the main theme of the show; it also makes every cover unique.
