Dois Contos / Book Design
Class: Typographic Semiology / Tutor: Álvaro Sousa
Masters in Design / Aveiro University (2013)
On the class of Typographic Semiology we were asked to design a book for two tales (in portuguese: "Dois Contos") both written by the late portuguese writer Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen. "The Silence" ("O Silêncio) and "Story of Cinderella" ("História da Gata Borralheira") are two stories about two different women, with each one of them facing a dark event on the course of their lives. The assignment was to do a complete design for the book: cover and back cover, page layout, pick fonts, sizes, interlineations... pretty much everything that is necessary to do a whole book.
