“Unicer, a long story” celebrates, portrays and
eternalises 125 years of operation by the largest
Portuguese drinks producer, part of the Carlsberg
Group, based in Porto (in the north of Portugal) and
Over 1,000 pages, with a differentiating design, are
packed into this two-volume literary work. It consists
of two hard cover books in a very original wooden
case, reminiscent of the wooden cases once used to
transport beer. This case can be used for storage,
transport and displaying the books on the library
Omdesign was in charge of the design, page layout
and production of this book in 2014 and also
produced a shorter print version, with reserved access,
through QR Code and address, to two digital versions
(PT and EN).
The book has special finishes. The bronze-embossed
bas-relief cover is only in colours and materials that
are used in the brewing industry and for beer. The
velvety varnish has an effect that reproduces the
texture of two extraordinary original tapestries, which
portray the brewing process. These tapestries, by the
renowned artist, Eduardo Nery, are property of the
company. In the inside, there are several pages with
spot varnish on some pictures and illustrations. The
beginning of memorable moments in the life of the
company and of each chapter are highlighted using
quadriptychs and triptychs.
