Book design, exhibition design and social media graphics
In 2019, French photographer, Pénélope Romand-Monnier captured countless images of building facades throughout New York City. The resulting series, CITY OF MIRRORS, is a document revealing the surprising, often surreal paintings generated by the layered light effects, mirrors and reflections that dance upon the city’s canvases of glass.
In 2021, Pénélope Romand-Monnier enlisted FAY as a partner on the project, who brought it to life in person and print. FAY started by designing a limited-edition, hardcover photo book—and advised on naming, editorial structure and print production—its statement silver cover doubling as a mirror. In addition, the studio helped with the exhibition’s graphic materials, which was held at Paris’ Espace Voltaire.
