Patterns of Europe

Patterns of Europe | Wzory Europy

The book summarises a series of meetings, conferences and workshops dedicated to traditional culture and contemporary design. It was our intention to convey this main idea behind the publication in its design.
We transferred the visual identity of the project (a modular sign and the colour scheme) onto the sides of the pad as well as the open spine of the publication with the use of a programme written especially for this task. As a result the title patterns penetrate the entire book, every page has a frame inspired by a motif resulting from the spatial interpretation of the pattern.

The flat pattern inspired by tradition was processed with the use of a modern design tool.

The programme was written in the Processing environment and is available under an open licence at the following address:
