CenterStage Performing Arts Academy

Project: Recital Program
Solution: Custom Book Design

This project is a full color 40-page perfect bound book done for a dance academy in Gallatin, TN. This was the program for their dance recital in 2012. It profiles every student, has advertisements and photographs of the dancers along with candids from everyday school activities.

The book theme plays off the owner's name "V" and the five year anniversary of her ownership of the school. Since the Roman numeral for 5 is a "v" the concept was obvious to me. So, I chose to make a V on the cover but it would only be visible when the covers were completely opened. A closed book simply had a block running through it seperating the dancers from the typography of words starting with "v".

The cover is primarily green and black with stock photography of dancers displayed. Every page inside the book was also custom designed to match the cover theme. I could not show the inside of the book online here because of privacy issues but if you contact me for a portfolio review, I would be glad to show you all of the book and any other materials not featured online.
