Communication design is the practice of planning and shaping a message in content, form and delivery. Communication design crafts effective and expressive ways to share ideas and messages with others, using an approach focusing on both problem-solving and persuasion.
Communication Design encompasses corporate identities, publication design, illustration, web design, branding, advertising, type design, information design, motion graphics and video.
Corporate identity & Logo
A corporate identity is the overall image of a corporation or firm or business and rendered in different mediums.
Case in Point: the identity for the Karolinska Institute’s Centre for Gender Medicine is based on traditional gender symbols (circle with arrow and circle with plus) transformed to a dynamic circular shape as to suggest the collaboration and exchange between the genders.
An illustration is a visualization or representation.
Case in point: the Red Dot award winning design to the Swedish jazz band Odd Jobb, developed while working in Gabor Palotai Design.
Editorial design or publication design is the design of a publication, for example a book, a magazine, etc.
Case in point: the publication [up]arte was developed from conception to print by me and the [up]arte team.The publication had different guest contributions and events, developed around the idea that art is, in many ways like playing black pieces in chess (i.e. playing as a reaction after the move of white pieces).
