As part of a contracted period of services delivered to one of Cape Towns Media Houses, GAPdesign was given the opportunity to art direct and conceptualise, design, project-manage, and print manage this publication for their Transnet client.
This was a once-off, celebration edition handed out as a memory on the opening day of the new port, Ngqura, just outside Port Elizabeth to all attendees. GAP contracted a professional photographer and together we visited the new site with the aim to build a visual portfolio that could complement the narrative.
The print finish of the publication was a Matt UV Fil Varnish to extend the shelflife of the publication. The slightly lighter in tone, grey, crane, were treated with a spot gloss varnish as well as the image of the new port’s entrance, on the cover.
