  • The Kennedy Conspiracy Newspaper
     
  • The Brief:

    The JFK assassination is one of the most widely debated conspiracy theories in history. For my final major project at University I chose to research the vast 
    amount of theories there are through the studies of authors, investigators and assassination experts. 

    The challenge I set myself was to explore these theories in a visually exciting 
    way to encourage the viewer to read into the subject in more depth. 

    The Solution:

    The visual imagery I experimented with was placed into the format of a newspaper, which was a reference to the era in which he was assassinated, the 1960s. 
    The coverage of the event was covered on a global scale therefore it was
    a strong connection to the subject to portray it in the form of a newspaper.

    The core concept of the project concentrates on the secrecy and the distortion of 
    the truth surrounding the official story. The newspaper aims to display this idea with visual manipulation of imagery, typographic experimentation and a simple colour palette echoing the era with the red to symbolise the violence of the event. 
  • The official story states that three bullets were shot at JFK by Lee Harvey Oswald. The newspaper contains three chapters as a reference to each bullet and is portrayed on the front cover.
  • The Why.

    Explores the theories as to why JFK was assassinated and the events during his presidency that may have caused someone to assassinate him.
  • The How.

    This chapter focuses on the assassination itself and the mysterious events that occurred around it.
