Ricardo Celma is an internationally renowned painter from Buenos Aires, Argentina. His works have been exhibited and sold all over the world and he has drawn extensive critical acclaim for his pieces.
I was asked to provide graphic design services for a book to capture and present all of his work to date – running at many hundreds of items – interspersed with text about the artist himself and his artworks. This was a direct commission from Ricardo Celma himself so involved extensive project management on my part to tie together the various photographers, copywriters and contributors to the book. After initial scoping sessions via a face to face meetings in Buenos Aires I returned to my home in London and continued working remotely via regular email communications and Skype sessions.
As Ricardo is a very busy man I have been trusted to work autonomously to draw together the page layouts, cover design and type positioning to produce the final result for submission to his publisher. The book is due for completion in 2015.
