War of the Words Publication
A hypothetical publication to acompany a series of thought-provoking talks hosted by Typeradio at an event in Amsterdam. The publication was the culmination of a typography module, requiring editorial design, page layouts, typesetting and use of images.
Words were the key. Words were weapons of ideology. They fought the speakers' battles in the air at the event, and would continue to fight them on the page afterwards. Here however, using lots of space around a central textblock, I gave the reader the opportunity to fight back.
Since the words and ideologies were key, the transcripts section of the book was deliberately text heavy to force the conference attendees to curb their 'looking' habits and actually read. To compensate for this, I made sure there were enough pull quotes and images to stop them nodding off from page to page, as well as the bright orange image inserts that were able to be pulled out to create a tiled poster.
The orange image inserts were compiled in a seperate 'Galleries' section.
Bibliographies of the contributors could be found at the back.
Could have done with a lick of colour here really...
The final touch was a provocative poster that doubled as a book jacket.
Many thanks to Akiem at Underware Type Foundry for allowing me the use of their wonderful typeface Dolly for this project. Thanks!
You can see more of the publication below, but sadly without the snazzy orange inserts. All the gallery pieces can still be found at the back, in colour!
