Designer Nina Couvert is based in The Hague, Netherlands and her focus is on typography, printed matter and web design. Among a wealth of smart, minimalist projects, this publication she created for a conference earlier this year about artistic research epitomises Nina’s approach wonderfully.
The pamphlet she designed was handed out to delegates at the conference and gathered together excerpts from all the speakers, essays, maps and a programme for the day. Using black, white and aqua, the publication contains a series of fold-outs, tip-ins and takeaways that neatly organise the conference into digestible sections.
Nina took a straightforward method in compiling all the information together and communicates a change in pace or topic through difference typefaces, scaling words to different sizes and employing sub-headings and titles to clearly denote the running order of the 64-page publication.
As well as pamphlets and posters for other creatives and events, Nina was recently asked to design the exhibition identity and catalogue for the end of year shows at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. Having graduated in 2015 she tackled the project with fellow alumni Danica Leliveld and Sepus Noordmans.
