Thresholds 50: Before | After
MIT School of Architecture
Publication design for the 50th issue of MIT School of Architecture’s peer-reviewed journal, Thresholds. The theme of the issue, “Before | After”, deals with the poignancies of the passage of time, looking backward and forward, at pasts, past futures, and present possibilities. As an allusion to the murky thresholds of “before” and “after”, the book features a neon red PMS spot color that ebbs and flows from the cover art through every single red in the book in fluctuating amounts—whether it’s through archival imagery, present-day photographs, differing gradient floods, handwritten elements, and even the threads in the Swiss-bound spine—serving as a metaphor for in-between moments that hint at the future and remind us that the past is sticky, persistent, and, in many ways, always with us.

Thresholds 50: Before | After can be purchased directly from MIT Press here.
