Signum. La Gloria del Renacimiento en el Reino de Murcia is the name of an exhibition that spoke about the glory of the Renaissance times in Murcia, a coastal region in the south of Spain. It was a golden moment in the art of the country.
We were asked to conceptualize, create, design and craft the catalog to this show, deliverables that had to emanate the essence of the exhibition as well as being clear, informative and respect the adequacy of the format. Things being like this, we decided to go to the source to get inspiration; we turned into the first published books from the Renaissance times. We decided we would do a modern version of those titles, both for the exhibition graphics and for the catalog, because it was a nice homage to pay to the topic and those times in history in which culture changes and evolves so much the world becomes a better place.
The editorial pieces were completed with Bembo, a renaissance typeface, revisited in 1929 by Monotype. It was a wonderful opportunity to take aesthetic choices that would reflect the true nature of the exhibition. Edited by Juan Ignacio Ruiz López, the book was published by Gobierno de la Región de Murcia.
