The numbers were developed as part of the Shanghai Jiao Tong Top 200 Research Universities book design. The idea is based on ribbons or medals awarded for excellence within a field, echoing the subject matter of the book.
Shanghai Ranking Book details:
Book design & art direction for a pioneering global university guide entitled Shanghai Jiao Tong Top 200 Research Universities Encyclopedia.
The Book is based upon direct interviews with the leaders of the world’s best 200 research universities as defined by the original and most respected international university ranking — the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).
We worked closely with research developer Alisdair Jones to realise his ambitious vision for the book.
