This brochure shows the type of creative alchemy we aspire to here at DGS. “L.A. Makes ART” is a campaign we developed for California Community Foundation (CCF) highlighting the considerable impact donors have on the arts in L.A. County. Included in the collateral is this brochure—a double book made through the use of a “z fold”. One brochure, two agendas: informational and directive.
Temporary Services has a knack for locating and highlighting really interesting off-beat materials and then turning that stuff into great books. In 2005 the excellent WhiteWalls press approached us about designing Temporary Services collection of drawings by a prisoner named Angelo. The resulting book, Prisoner’s Inventions, highlights the ways prisoners cobble together tools (a tattoo gun made from a Walkman, a paper clip, and a pen, as well as cups from toilet paper) adding amenities to their spare existences.
