This is my final project in my Advanced Typography class. We were given the opportunity to re-design the book, The Ten Commandments of Typography/Type Heresy: Breaking the Ten Commandments of Typography, by Paul Felton. We could either keep the same theme of commandments and heresies and simply re-design it, or (this is the route I chose) to create an all new theme. In the case of the latter, it required rewriting the copy and making sure it would fit with our new theme.
I choose to change the theme to a 50's, 60's style educational book. Instead of commandments, Sally would represent following the rules, and Jimmy would represent breaking them. I personally wrote all of the copy in the book and had a lot of fun doing it.
In the end this project nearly killed me since I was basically making a 50 page book, but I had a lot of fun doing it. It never felt like just another school project that I needed to get done. I'm very proud of this book and feel it sums up my creative style and showcases my writing abilities, my layout skills, my skills at working with type, choice of color, and overall general design skills perfectly.
