Casa Rex Initiates a New Direction in Illustrative Book Design

Casa Rex has developed the graphics for the book Our Movie, published by Edicoes Jogo de Amarelinha. Instead of creating illustrations that portray the book's content - a story about two young lovers - Casa Rex has used visuals in the form of soft shapes that weave through the pages in parallel to the narrative, almost like a sound track.

"These emotive, fluid graphics follow the relationship and story of the couple from their first date through to the romance, the sex, and finally, their separation," said Gustavo Piqueira, Creative Director, who illustrated the book together with design partner, Samia Jacintho.

The project has just been selected as one of the winning entries in the Books Category in the Communication Arts Magazine 2010 Design Annual 51 Awards, out of more than 4.500 submissions.
