The Smith Center: A Dream in the Desert

The Smith Center For the Performing Arts: A Dream in the Desert by Kurt Divich

Pictorial story about the building of the new cultural and performing arts center in Las Vegas. This premier performing arts venue is a celebration of architecture and though it is near the glitz and glitter of The Strip, it reflects a classier vibe. The book is 12 x 12, full color, hardbound. Photographs by Geri Kodey. The design of the books was entirely inspired by the art deco revival design of the complex buildings. With the beautiful photos supplied by Ms. Kodey, my job was to create an understated classic layout with elegant typography and plenty of white space to let those photos tells the story and shine out the beauty of this dream in the desert.
