David Carson / Deconstruction
Research project about the connection between the work of the famous designer David Carson
and the theory of Deconstruction. The task was to write a 3500 word text, after doing the research needed,
and then design a book about it.
David Carson / Deconstruction is a book designed according to the concept of deconstruction.
Each reader breaks the book down to parts and puts it back together according to their present experience.
It is a package of 7 pieces, 3 carton pieces including the front and back covers and the contents page,
a small sheet with the bibliography used, a 4-page leaflet which explains the theory of deconstruction
from philosophy to graphic design, a 2-page leaflet about David Carson as a short bio and description
and a full-text poster which compares the two aspects of the theme.
As DC says in an interview to Lewis Blackwell in his book The End of Print (2005),
" ... Black type on white paper is still in some ways the most intriguing problem for me"
So the whole project is designed in grayscale on blank backgrounds.
