Secrets of the Barguzin Skeleton - Márton Borzák:
Books that utilise their subject matter and extend it onto their pages are often more exciting than books that use interesting layouts and typography; Secrets of the Barguzin Skeleton is one such book created by New York graphic designer Márton Borzák.
The book is designed to reflect the secrets and evidence that emerged from a startling Siberian news story. Comments, annotations and illustrations are printed throughout the book with UV ink so readers can investigate the crime scene further for themselves with the attached UV light within the bindings of the book. The style of the layouts and text make the book feel like an exposé of a deep conspiracy, and this is something that has been effectively executed by Borzák; the theme of the book is clear, and is carefully considered, and skilfully crafted.

Brochure Design: Executive Focus
The Brief: Design a 6 page brochure style magazine to advertise a range of products from The Main Report Group (Niche weeklies and E-Books).
This magazine is about introducing people to products The Main Report offers, it was originally going to be sent out as a mail drop. Because of this I decided on using a strip down the outer edge of each page for important information. This strip would explain what the publication/report is about and why you should subscribe. On the inner section of the page I wanted room for one photo, which would give you a quick idea of what each report specialised in. This meant people flicking through the pages might stop on one if they were interested in a particular sector.
For the articles I felt each piece needed to stand out on it’s own, especially because each weekly covers a range of different types of articles for each sector. I did this by breaking the alignment up and using a generous amount of white space.
Each colour palette of the page goes along with each brands identity.
