I was commissioned to design the annual report / Vuosikertomus for the Reality Research Center, which describes itself as "... a collective of artists engaged in performative adventures. Our shared aspiration is to observe, question, and renew reality by creating performances." The report employs visually rich metaphors, with abstract and fluid layouts that reflect the spirit of TTK's performance initiatives.

The publication employs visually rich metaphors, with abstract and fluid layouts that reflect the spirit of TTK's performance initiatives. The approach embraces aesthetic pleasure but also serves to intuitively guide the reader through the multifaceted aspects of TTK’s yearly activities.

The design intent is to create a feeling of contemporary performance through the image collages and colour choices.

At the core of the design concept is a rich colour palette that combines high-contrast colours like deep rust and electric blue with soothing neutrals such as taupe and mauve.

This choice infuses the report with visual energy and creates harmony with the themes of contemporary performance that TTK explores. Central to the report's aesthetic are the image collages that layer distorted photographs with a mix of tactile and digital textures, creating a dramatic, painting-like effect. These collages are designed to evoke the immersive nature of a performance, drawing the reader into the world of experimental expression. The intensity of these visual elements allows for a minimalistic approach to the textual content, ensuring that the information is presented clearly and without distraction.
