When designing this book, I encountered problems which involved both analytical problem solving and abstract. With this book, I was given a lot of room to explore concepts and visually display abstract perception. There were also many straightforward aspects which involved the body’s function and portrayed the body in a mechanic way, working like a big machine.

I reflected this through my choice of contrasting typefaces. I used changes of landscape along with imagery relating to the brain to show the effects that drugs can have, where time and space can become jumbled and perceived in different ways. I used historic photos to portray the lengthy life these drugs have had in our history and juxtaposes this with the new found understanding of how they function and affect people.

Overall, when designing this aged book, I kept true to the information while also perceiving the abstract aspects through college that stimulate the mind in ways that question time place, body and mind.
