Gemological Institute of America
Publication Design, Art Direction, Photography, Illustration
The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is the world’s leading authority on gemology. Gems & Gemology is a 100-page quarterly scientific publication that is distributed internationally. Comet Creative designed and produced iPad and print publication versions. The studio gave the publication a facelift designing new section headers, updating typography varying the cover designs to better fit the lead editorial.
Project Outcomes | ROI
Gems & Gemology was awarded the prestigious 2010 Gold Ink Award, the highest recognition for printing and publication design. Comet Creative art directed all publication specifications while working closely with the printer, Allen Press.
Publication Section Design
Designing consistent section headers gave the publication a more cohesive design and visually reinforced the content in each section.
Technical illustrations distilled from scientific data informed readers of the chemical compositions of gems, light attributes and a host of other technical details relating to gemology.
