Published:
Visual Language project utilizing listing as part of the creative process. We were asked to create a "life index" and bring in some autobiographical source materials. The "Memory Survey" follows the style and concept of geographical publications and technical manuals. Certain memories and the way I expect to regard them in the coming year are presented and diagrammed for the viewer to have an intimate look into my personal narrative of my past.

Sorry for the small images - they're meant to be viewed as spreads and this is the widest Behance will allow. Larger sizes are viewable here: http://rojanasakul.com/lifeindex.php
