The KAUST brochure was a piece used to advertise the still in construction university to an audience that has not yet seen the campus. Using black and white photos hid discoloration and undesirable details attributed to construction still underway when they photos were taken. The brochure was used for almost a year, even after the university had opened as one of the main marketing tools for prospective students and staff.
The project was produced in Adobe Photoshop©, Illustrator© and InDesign© with the Adobe World Tools©, Middle East Typography Plugin.
Working directly with the printer, the files were optimized for pre-press by myself to specify where the UV spot gloss would lay and colors matched to correct Pantone© values.
