No, not that Nick Cave, not the one with the Bad Seeds. I bet he gets that a lot. Nick Cave is chair of Fashion Design at the School of Art Institute in Chicago. His art has been described as an exploration of “…when textiles meet modern dance…”
This incredible brochure set was designed by Allison Wilton to showcase his work. Beautiful photography combined with sharp graphics and the finest quality print stock, make this superb project a work of art in itself.
Each of the three brochures is contained within an iron-cross folder which opens to reveal details of intricate beading and patterns from Cave’s pieces. The details are printed with a one colour spot halftone in neutral gray, to accentuate the vividness of the colours in his textile work.
Incredibly tactile, beautifully designed and perfectly executed. What more could you want from a print project? Superb.
