I had set out to pursue the designing and publishing of my book dedicated to my recently designed ''Labyrinth Neue'' typeface as apart of my final year project in college. It has been my pursued path from day one to create a book that ultimately acts as a presenttion display of my typeface, so that I can give it a strong dynamic application to editorial design as well as typography.
My essential aim for this book was to create something that is strikingly modern through the methods of layout and typography I aimed to incorporate within this so that I can address a contemporary aesthetic about my design that is eye catching. The book in itself is a minimal design solution bringing forward the current design movement for editorial design. As my core inspiration was collected from ''Noah Collin'', who is also another dedicated typographic illustrator and book designer.
Here is a photographic presentation of my book taking you through the key essential pages that address the story and development behind the design.
