Architects Buckley Gray Yeoman wanted a simple in-house solution for putting together customised printed portfolios to send out to prospective clients. My task was to create a working InDesign template that was flexible, where each page looked designed and individual project spreads could be bound and housed within a BGY branded cover.
The modular grid for the template takes inspiration from Fibonacci's divine proportions. Not only is the 8:13 ratio now fundamental for designers and architects, but it gives the format a purpose and showcases the clients architectural projects in a complimentary and appropriate way. Also the template has a professionally designed look and feel with consistency running through the document, anybody within the practice could use the template and mock up spreads for new projects and collate an on brand, professionally finished portfolio.
