Out of Mountain

Book design

Guiyang WOW

We extracted the tenacity of Guizhou people from the “mountain” from the conception of the magazine, and selected Xingkai, one of the traditional signature typeface of Guiyang’s urban style in modern times. In the visual concept of the whole book, the map as a design concept. It is not only a map in the true sense, but also a book that doesn’t look like a map. Buildings towering above the mountains, text wrapped in the map. It will become the city’s yesterday, today, tomorrow, and into the future.
