22/08/2017

Anna Takács, a Hungarian design student at Ecole D’Art Maryse Eloy Visart in Paris, has an eye for stylish details. Harmonious color schemes, particular material choices, and contemporary typography combined, her latest project is a prime example of an excellent designer in the making. 

LYNX is an astronomical magazine concept which subject is based on a planet of the Solar system in each month. The main concept of the varied covers is to make a tactical first impression of the planet attributes besides of the visual one. The first and second layered covers are made of an interesting paper material to emphasize the style of the surface quality of the planet in question. For instance rough and scratchy texture for Mars and a pleasing soft one for Venus. Every planet possesses an astronomical symbol originated from Greek papyrus findings of the late antiquity, continued and extended in codices during the Byzantine era. By folding the first cover, this sign appears and on its back the one belonging to the planet in the next issue, forecasting the topic of the coming magazine.
