James Kape Portfolio

Australian designer James Kape will soon be embarking on a year-long working trip to New York. Since he’ll be looking for a design position while here, promotional materials were in order. So he came up with this clean and modern stationery system and portfolio book. The book itself was hand-crafted by an artisan book binder using brown box cover and a strip of yellow buckram on the binding. The cover title was letterpressed and the interior pages were printed digitally, culminating in a deceivingly simple piece. Check out a few more details right here.
