how we did it
We created a concept and visual language that juxtapose tradition with a modern twist in order to accurately portray the information contained in this mini-guide of Paris.
Depth and modernity are portrayed through the use of a duotone image in the cover meant to address a broad range of public with its unisex design. With elegance and simplicity as key points, the use of blocks of colour brings a fresh and vibrant feeling to the tourist guide.
The colour palette has been derived from the colours of Frenchly’s brand with a slightly softer tone to facilitate legibility and bring about freshness. The combination of 2 sans-serif typefaces (Agus Sans and Gotham family) give a strong personality to the style of the magazine while preserving its lightness.
The square format of this guide facilitates its transportation and usage.
