Oedipus—Typographic redesign
 
This project redesigns Sophocles' celebrated Oedipus through its typography. The framework is composed of 2 main structures; 1) a master spinal baseline from which the main content hangs and on which the supporting text (titles, page numbers, author) perch, and 2) the double column that emphasizes the Greek dialogue, while allowing space for potential monologues. The three plays under the Oedipus trilogy were typeset, allowing a comprehensive design and flowing legibility throughout the text.
