This Art Brochure Takes a Fresh Approach (Includes Video)

This week, takes a look at brochures designed by Rigsby Hull for international art consultant Weingarten Art Group in Houston. The communications pieces are as crisp and fresh as the work of a breakout artist hanging on the walls of your favorite gallery.

Filled with light and air, the unconventional approach gives the brochure and newsletter a timeless appeal. There is no binding—the forms are gathered and nested together conveying an effortless but very intentional casual style. This format makes it easy to replace any of the forms for showcasing new artwork.

The brochures were printed by Workhorse Printmakers in Houston; and the paper used was Neenah Paper and Crane’s Crest kid finish.
