Graphic Design IV
UMSL Spring 2012
Instructor: Jen McKnight
Coming up with a topic for my mini thesis was a struggle.
After going through about 4 different ideas, I decided to choose a topic
that I am passionate about: sodium. I am on a low sodium diet myself,
for medical reasons, so I feel strongly about this topic.
My purpose for this project is to educate my audience on what too much
salt in your diet can do to you, and how you can cut back on it. I want to
take a simple and typographic approach to it so that it educates without
lecturing the reader. There are three sections, and 25 pages.
The goal for the design of this book is to keep everything clean and simple,
with lots of white space, and nothing to distract the viewer from actually learning.
It's supposed to feel medical, but also modern.
I would deem this book successful if the reader walks away with awareness
of the sodium in the foods they eat.
