- The Countdown project is based on the Faber & Fabers brief on a series cover design. The variety of genres in the Faber Film list requires a design adaptable for screenplays, technique guides and film history books as well, for sale through the Print on Demand service.
The idea for the project is inspired by the dialectic between cinema and literature and their common linear narrative structure. The design of the books evokes a film and the film countdown is used to indicate the name of the range and the title number in it. In the mutual world of Faber and cinema, the movie reel becomes a logotype of the Faber Film series.
