Small Footprint Big Impact
In preparation for graduation students at EKU create physical portfolios to showcase their work in conjunction with their BFA capstone project. A minimum of 12 pieces of work that were recently completed must be selected and it must work cohesively with your personal brand. All construction, materials, and formatting were defined by the student
Bringing 18 papers from 3 different mills I challenged myself to utilize each paper to accentuate the purpose and possibilities of my individual projects. The result is only slighly larger then a traditional paperback novel but can extend over 2.5'. Each paper brings different colors, ink holdout, and tactile feedback to cosntantly re-engage the viewer. The folding causes you to slow down and thoroughly view the work while also adding to the narrative elements of each project. Monsters rise up from the desert, asteroids spin through outer space, and type crumples apart. It all rolls the viewer back to the front to remind them, "It's all about the story."
The copy for each individual project can be found here.
