Once again, we were challenged to give a face to the yearly publication issued on the occasion of the anniversary of the University of Minho. This year’s Revista UMinho explores the theme of interaction between the university and society, in its different modes and effects.
The University of Minho presents itself as a “promoter of economic, social and cultural development” and it’s characterised by a strong bond with its surrounding environment, thereby plays an active role in reshaping it.
The cover aims to reflect the mark that UMinho’s leaves on the community through the projects and actions it promotes. For that, there seemed to be no better way to represent the metaphor of a fingerprint than through the application of blind embossing.
The magazine inner pages are divided into three parts, where each has been assigned a slightly different tone of voice expressed through a somewhat different layout, as well as the type of paper and—in case of the editorial part—also a different page size.
