Art Catalogue

The 18th Street Arts Center (2014-15) Catalogue is a 100-page publication dedicated to a list of visiting and resident artists.

Most of the artists featured in the catalogue created site-specific work, as a response, we took direct visual cues from the topography of Santa Monica by using large scale maps, wayfinding signs, and navigational structures. Throughout the creative process, we experimented with shapes and meaning to create a system for guiding the viewer through the book the way physical spaces guide people through wayfinding. Each section was artistically crafted to have a unique and cohesive design approach that would complement and not compete with the art on display; we carefully curated the images throughout the publication.
