Fake News & True Love: 14 Stories by Robert Baines

Fake News & True Love: 14 Stories by Robert Baines

Exhibition branding for Fake News & True Love: 14 Stories by Robert Baines at the Museum of Arts and Design — Baines is a master jewelry-copier & craftsman who creates fake narratives to further “validate” his works. 

Referencing print tabloids and TV news to build loud yet ordered layouts, the tabloid takeaway featured Baines’ fake stories and correlated with his works on display. The jumbo type graphics that wrapped the exhibition were also taken from the tabloid design — all using a chaotic number of fonts to then order into readable design layouts in a single(ish) voice.
