One of the more interesting projects a graphic designer can take on is the design of a catalog. As the designer, your job is to communicate what your client has offered for sale while at the same time attracting the attention of prospective buyers and then keeping their interest while they (hopefully) thumb through the catalog looking for something to buy.
With Walter Reuben’s two catalogs (#42 & #43), I took the “less is more” approach, keeping the design focused on presenting each object and description as simply and crisply as possible — letting the piece or pieces speak for themselves.
