Violin masterclass 2016 booklet
I designed the booklet of the first violin masterclass of the Zakhar Bron School of Music (Zurich, Switzerland) that took place as a part of a prestigious Menton Music Festival (Côte d’Azur, France).
The booklet design is simple, light and well balanced.
The picture of Sergey Ostrovsky, the first violinist of Aviv Quartet and a professor of the University of Geneva, looks good on the front page of the booklet.
The left inner page contains the festival information (that takes place since 1949) and the right page is assigned to the masterclass details: teachers, location, admission etc.
For the purpose of symmetry with the front page, the back page of the booklet presents a black-and-white photo of the famous Parisian violinist Alexandra Soumm, as well as the address details of the Swiss school of music and Menton tourism information center.
This is how the spread of the front and back pages of the booklet look.
Three language versions
Since the booklet was targeted not only for the English-speaking audience, but for the residents of France, Germany and Switzerland as well, there were also made the German and French versions of the booklet.
The front page design of the German version.
The front page design of the French version.
I was pleased to see my work at Côte d’Azur, France.
This is how the printed booklet looked on the Menton Tourism Information Center counter…
…and on the shelf with other booklets.
