Adieu Saigon — Editorial Design

Adieu Saigon

Editorial Design

To accompany the high-contrast, black-and-white pictures of the Vietnam War I decided on a very dark and bold typeface, set on a grey background. By using a rather small format and bleeding the photographs off the spread, this book conveys an closed-in, almost claustrophobic vibe.
