Editorial Design : New Brutalism Controversial Concrete

Tim Tijink shared a personal editorial design and graphic design project titled New Brutalism: Controversial Concrete. This self initiated project explores, researches and designs with and around the concrete structures of the architectural movement called New Brutalism, which emerged during the 1950s and currently finds itself in a critical time.

The idea was to find and explore ways in which the combination of design, typography and photography reinforces the impressive and raw architectural style in such a way that it accentuates the powerful aesthetics of the buildings.

Issue 01 showcases five buildings located in London, Berlin, Belgrade and San Diego. Besides an editorial booklet, the issue features three additional poster prints of the Avala Tower and the Geisel Library.
