The Present Perfective Paradox across Languages
PhD book cover design
Proposal for doctoral thesis by Astrid De Wit. The subject – the present perfective paradox across languages – deals with time, viewpoint and perspective; this is reflected in the use of '3D' rectangles and the playful position of the typography.
Another proposal for Astrid focussed on perspective and used a more simple and straightforward design. This is more in line with the design conventions of academic literature and that's the reason why Astrid chose this route.
