The cover variants of the program booklet play with the stark contrast of plain yellow and red, colors associated with danger, heat and action. The only graphic elements used are the Maison de la Culture logotype and the figures “2021”, both set in PVC Banner Ultra designed by Hélène Marian and published by Production Type. The typeface was developed with exactly this kind of use in mind: to maximally fill up the horizontal space.
Looking inside the brochure we see the way the pictures participate in the game of yellow and red: their lower half is systematically altered to a duotone look. The dividing spread “Hiver” uses a blury photograph, overdrawn with a digitally generated pattern, red on yellow.
In addition to PVC Banner, PVC Menu is used in the brochure as a titling face and the yet to be released Text version of Media Sans by Jean-Baptiste Levée in its Regular and Bold cuts for the longer reads.
