ArtDesk Magazine Issue 03

Glossed Over
In every issue of ArtDesk we explore different production techniques that add interest and dimension to enhance content. For the third issue, we were inspired by the featured artists’ (Larry Bell and Spencer Finch) use of glass, light and reflection. We created a subtlely-tinted, spot gloss varnish as a visual motif across the diverse sections of the magazine; sometimes playing the role of an accent and other times the only definition on the page. Wherever it appears, the subtle glint of reflection and shadow causes us to pause a second longer—to absorb, understand and appreciate.
