Project A: Book/Magazine Re-Design: Production Plan [ Sara Jassim ]


Book Title: AL-Manak. [ The Climate ]

Book Description:

The book offers detailed analysis of the history, culture and architecture of The Gulf region and discusses the implications of the rapid development of these territories for the rest of the world. It contains many essays and interviews by numerous architects, intellectuals and developers as well as a large number of illustrations and photographs that accompany the case-study. The book is divided into 3 sections: Dubai Guide – Gulf Survey – Global Agenda.

Audience: Developers, Architects, Tourists.

Art Direction [ the concept ]: basically my idea is to create similar visuals as the original cover, yet in a more organized & clear way.

Keywords: Development, Projects Plans, Urbanization.

Photoshop Techniques: Image adjustments and layerings.

  1. I just want to hear your own way of explaining the art direction. Why do you want to reorganize and clarify the current image? Does the current image provide the right message of the content? If so, what do you want to say on the cover? Your key words are good.

  2. well, I think the current cover shows the message of the contents since the visuals are the plans of the projects in Dubai.. However, the cover is too crowded that you cant read the title and the sub-titles (the 3 sections of the book) clearly/ easily!

    my intention is to make it more organized yet illustrates/translates the contents of the book as well. Also, to make it looks more friendly and at the same time sophisticated, first to grab people’s attention and second to illustrate the serious issues that the book provides.
