V shape departs from the expected diagonal symmetric construction we usually associate it with. Instead, it’s calligraphic roots bring in curves and dramatic play of positive versus negative space. Experimenting with effects and different line density options immersed us into world of op-art. Final design utilizes classic typographic inline raster, and takes it to the next level by creating illusion of third dimension within the shape. Already vibrant design is enhanced with foil printing technique in shiny blue color. While holding physical copy of the magazine, one can play with the angle under which light hits the foil.
