Facebook Type Specimen Book
Project Description
For this project, we were supposed to design and produce a specimen book for a typeface. The typeface had to be created by Adrian Frutiger. There was a few typefaces to choose from, and I went with Avenir Next. A theme for the book was supposed to be taken from research done on the selected typeface. Since Avenir Next was invented in 2004, I decided to research popular things that happened that year. Facebook was invented in the year 2004 so I made that my theme for the book. My color scheme includes the signature blue that is used for Facebook, along with various tints and shades of it. I incorporated some elements of the social media company such as the profile page and the layout of what a post looks like. The book consists of three chapters, and each one starts with divider spread. It corporates the pointer hand to go along with the online aspect that is Facebook. I used text to create a visual texture by repeating words in light colors so it would be seen, but not be distracting. I believe that what I came up with was a successful and interesting way to design a book based on Facebook.
