"The project’s ultimate purpose was to inspire the viewer to view the selected typeface in a new light. This design celebrates 90 years of Futura, and within its pages flaunts 20 style formats, that of which the first introduced by Paul Renner in the early 1900s. It is a "squeeky clean" approach to visual communication, and boasts a clinical style aesthetic that consists of one large A3 poster which encases collectors cards and a small information booklet. The stock used is waterproof and primarily designed for wear and tear by readers, as they learn more about Futura, one of the world’s most famous and commonly used typefaces."

"Colour is able to inspire and surprise. The work of the Jewellery and Product designer Vera Aldejohann is mainly based on her love to colours, which she use as most formative element in her projects. For her portfolio were seventeen small books designed, each contains one of her projects. Every book is supplemented by two different covers, which are based on the colour palette of the designers work. Through a flexible system of clips is it possible to mix and change the covers for every presentation of the portfolio. In this way the covers work not only as protection for the white books, but also as a tool for the inspiration of the designer."
