  • ISTD - Not Just Fleurons
  • This project required an essentially typographic interpretation of any selected brief set out by the International
    Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD). I chose the brief entitled
    , which required an exploration of the complex relationship that exists between plants and humans. The brief asked a celebration of plants in any form or variety and was, therefore, quite open.

    My project follows the history and life cycle of a single plant, Vanilla. The narrative of the plant is designed in a
    circular fashion, mimicking the cyclical nature of growth and plant processes. The interpretation consists of two parts: a traditional representation with a logical narrative structure and an abstract subversion that represents Vanilla Essence.

    This project was awarded a merit award by the ISTD and subsequently gained me a membership.
