National Art Gallery of the Bahamas, NE6 Catalogue, November 2012


Way back in November, the NAGB had an exhibition titled Kingdom Come. I was hired to design and help with the concept of the catalogue. The client wanted something different from their previous catalogues, which were all perfect-bound books. They also wanted to print more cost-efficiently than before. So my task was to find that balance of designing something spare yet special. Which was a fun task since I’ve always liked indie mags like Purple that printed two-colour or even one-colour sections. I thought that would be a good way to save money. We printed only in black and a Pantone red spot ink. I also thought we should print, fold and produce in the Bahamas. Which was cheaper if we did some of the elbow-greasing ourselves. We ended up folding 350 of those booklets, and 700 posters into special booklets at a special folding party with volunteers. There was so much that went into the party, and I could get into it—but you can totally read about it here.

Most importantly, the production of this catalogue would be impossible without the efforts, expertise and advice from Sonia Farmer at Poinciana Paper Press.
