It can take a lot for a student project to create a lasting impression, but graphic designer Guillem Casasús seems to know what he’s doing. In response to a university brief he created Power, a publication which focuses on the lack on information given by the government about wars over energy resources, claiming that the people in power, from political figures to oil companies, rarely reveal the real reason for the armed conflicts which continue to be fought.
Along with a striking three-volume book which has heat sensitive pages, beginning black and then warming with touch up to reveal the photographs underneath, Guillem has also created an identity which has every possible corner covered – from packaging and business cards to the brilliantly diverse and expressive imagery which fills the book itself. Somebody snap this one up quickly!
