Info

Objective
Our task was to redesign the rororo monographien, a series of Germany's first soft books publishing company. Together with this task, the question arose of how to design and transform information, which is based on plain facts and figures, how to make it lively. We created an old, used, black-and-white picture language by using several scanned materials. Combined with vector-based, colored objects, regarding the aspect of contrast between retro and modern, we made sure to develop an interesting tension. We defined a square module that gave us the possibility to rearrange and position it wherever we thought it was necessary and useful.

Tools used
We used Adobe® Photoshop® CS to create and edit all pictures and pixel graphics. We worked with different layer styles to combine scanned materials. We developed a grid by using Adobe InDesign® CS and defined diverse master pages for the single pages, chapter opener, etc. At last, we created several style sheets for the copy text, quotations, headlines, and subheadlines. The book is arranged and designed in InDesign CS, which we used to create the preprint PDF file. Having this first experience in designing a book, we appreciated the comfortable workflow created by using InDesign CS and Photoshop CS.
