Fotciencia - Underbau:
Madrid-based graphic design agency Underbau was responsible for creating these beautiful catalogues to accompany the national scientific photography contest, Fotciencia.
Both the 8th Edition and the 10th Edition (shown above) are incredibly carefully considered documents. Each front cover is a wonderful combination of a graphical mechanic and a laser-cutting technique. I am a big fan of the scales graphic that is used by Underbau for the 10th Edition.
Regarding their layouts, Underbau are not afraid of white space; it is an easy trap to fall into, making sure every piece of white is covered, but the images and text in these catalogues are allowed a lot of breathing space. The result is a beautiful, technically considered design.
