Create a two page opening spread for a supplied article and a visually and conceptually interesting design, along with the communication of the main idea of the text.
My approach was a combination of the brainstorming of concepts and composition, along with the experimentation of new and unusual materials. I started the process work with reading and annotating the supplied article, then created word lists and did research on the topic.
For my final design, I thought about the pros and cons of working digitally versus manually. The biggest difference for me is the ability to annotate and mark up physical works. You can't write on a computer screen, you can't circle and cross things off, so I incorporated that idea into my work. The main focus is a retro, originally beige computer, with annotations of gratitudes, frustrations, and suggestions of work by myself, classmates, and family.
Upon submission of the spread, my professor commented that all aspects were of professional quality, including overall design, concept, type hierarchy, typographic creativity, and process work.
