Nuovo Devoto-Oli – The dictionary of contemporary Italian
Devoto-Oli is one of the most important Italian dictionaries, published by Le Monnier.
The aim of the project was to make the pages and the thousand of entries easy to consult, since the layout, for its own nature, is constant.
The whole typography is now redesigned and the text is organised thanks to the informations hierarchy, the focused usage of the colour and symbols.
The dictionary presents two columns sections, that are in-depth analysis about special words, for instance, the ones that are used to be mistaken most or advices on how we can choose the right word. The typefaces used are Sole Serif by Cast Foundry and Nitti Grotesk by Bold Monday.
Project realized at Leftloft for Mondadori Education – Milan – 2016 / 2017
Honoured with the “Certificate of Typographic Excellence” TCD64 & Bronze at Laus Awards
The color, the use of icons and the drop cap letters help the reader in finding easily the informations he needs. The two columns sections are characterised by three icons, depending on different topics.
