Content: The artists and curator all had different working relationships so we created a set of info-graphics to show that show the nature how and where they have collaborated and a key to reading them. This is in addition to the purely informational text.

Visuals: Our initial sketches for the relationship diagrams were geometric and used the most basic of shape and patterns which reminded us of 1960s paperback book covers so we used a bold Helvetica-driven International Style aesthetic to play that up. We wanted to keep that sense of basic geometry or defaults throughout the design so we used a simple (and bright) blue and red color palette.
