Beyond the Streets

BEYOND THE STREETS is a 40,000 sq. ft. art exhibit in Downtown Los Angeles featuring over 100 graffiti and street artists from around the world. I had the pleasure of working on this project to concept advertising and to design, layout and typeset the companion book. Coming in at 500 pages and 3.6 lbs., the companion book for BEYOND THE STREETS includes essays, interviews and artwork for over 100 artists. The book contains over 1,000 photos and hundreds of individual text portions. A design language was created and maintained throughout the project and because of this, style sheets were critical in creating a cohesive look and flow, while still allowing individual layouts to stand out from one another.

From the curator:

BEYOND THE STREETS is the companion book to the groundbreaking exhibition of graffiti, street art and beyond. It features over 100 artists, most of whom would have stolen it at one point in their careers. A few of them still will, just because they can.

This book is a good steal, so you can’t really blame them. It features countless stories, interviews and articles of ups and downs, twists and turns, tall tales and great success, mixed in with some historical and critical essays and words of wisdom from the best of the best of the best. And for those of you who don’t like to read, there are over a thousand images to flip through and make yourself feel smarter.
