The objective of this assignment was to create a zine made up of whatever content desired. This project was meant to help familiarize students with typesetting, it's relationship with graphics, and establishing an overall sense of unity within the work. This project also allowed students to dissect their interests and conceptual thoughts, while applying the technical aspects of design.
Interested in human relationships, I decided to create a zine where I interviewed ten women. I had each of them answer the question, "what is it like being a sister?" in one sentence. To accompany each of their answers, I also created vectors to visually explain their feelings or experiences. The various shades of blue are meant to evoke a calming effect while unifying the work, thus unifying the sisters.
This work was a combination of familial relationships through the female perspective. The name "for sisters, by sisters" represents how there is not one person who claims ownership but rather presents a collection of authors all brought together by sisterhood. As the women featured differ in age, ethnicity, and cultural background, this work unites us, while surpassing our differences. This zine acts as a foundation for practicing good habits: seeing the similarities in humanity, as opposed to what divides us.
