TDS Journal 8 cover design

We were invited by The Design Society Singapore to design one of the sixty covers for the TDS Journal 8, titled 'ANEW'.

Idea The theme 'ANEW' is described as 'A fresh perspective. A new light'. We translated this into a top-view image of the journal in actual size, and with the cover title in upside-down orientation.

When a reader turns the journal around to read the title (a fresh perspective), the cover visual can then be seen as resembling a shining light cone (a new light).
