Zumtobel is a lighting manufacturer based in Dornbirn, Austria. For Zumtobel's 2017/18 annual report, they asked us to create a custom artist edition. Inspired by light and shadow, we designed a visual language synthesizing typographic play with gradients. Each chapter included unique covers of Zumtobel Group subsidiaries.
The annual report came with 20 prints featuring typographic phrases inspired by light. The report was printed in a standard and limited edition. The standard sandwiched the report between two cover boards, while the latter was specially equipped in a box. Each edition was wrapped by bands that form the letter “Z.”
