The brief was to create a trade book about ten typographers linked by an overarching theme.
Type Unwrapped is a personal trade book that celebrates candy bar wrappers. It gives overdue recognition to the ten type designers of the original typefaces modified for use in these popular candy bars.
Each page points out and explains the typographic differences and similarities between the modified letterforms and the original typefaces. This book digs deeper into the reason behind the modifications and how typefaces play an essential role in communicating a brands' message for both designers and non-designers to learn.
The project was well-received by designers and non-designers around me and has been recognized in design competitions.
