Project Rizzoli: The Making of The Art of Discovery

October 28, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Project Rizzoli:
The Making of The Art of Discovery
Hollywood Stars Reveal
Their Inspirations

Nancy Rouemy, principal of We Live Type Ltd, will reveal the behind-the-scenes process that culminated in a stunning collector’s edition coffee table book newly released by Rizzoli, the premier publisher of illustrated books.

• Learn how Rouemy and her collaborators landed the publisher.
• Snagged the celebrities.
• Art directed the talent (mostly from 2800 miles away).
• Married type and image — under an impossible deadline.

The Art of Discovery features one hundred intimate portraits of celebrities relating personal stories about their inspirations, interpreted typographically by award-winning designer and art director Nancy Rouemy. Ranging from anecdotal to poignant, the accounts are from luminaries including Jessica Chastain, Adam Driver, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ethan Hawke, Amber Heard, Anna Kendrick, Nicole Kidman, Jared Leto, Jeremy Renner, Seth Rogen, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Kristen Stewart, Justin Theroux, Naomi Watts, Shailene Woodley, and other icons of the entertainment industry.

The Art of Discovery will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Proceeds from the The Art of Discovery support The Creative Coalition’s work to champion the arts in America.

Prior to founding her own studio, Rouemy served as an art director at The New York Times Magazine, winning over one hundred awards, including the Pennsylvania State University 2014 Arts & Architecture Alumni Award for Graphic Design; both Gold and Silver medals from The Art Directors Club, Society of Publication Designers, and Best of News Design.
