We use our powers to advance institutions and people in the arts by translating their ideas into experiences that create a lasting legacy through books and identities that grow audience and reputation.

Books and Publications

With a distinct experience in book design and production, we find beauty arises from a response to the content that is led by strong ideas, typography, and attention to the book as a sculptural object.


We focus on ongoing partnerships with museums, galleries, publishers, curators and artists. We believe design flourishes with collaboration and open and diverse thought and dialogue. We’re curious and inquisitive researchers of information from the poetic to typographic.

Founded in Brooklyn Luminosity Lab is the design practice of Caleb Cain Marcus who received his MFA from Columbia University and has work in the collections of the Getty and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
