Type and Editorial Project
The brief required me to design a poster for the event - considering grids, type, layout, colour etc. I came up with 3 final pieces and chose 1 to keep in my portfolio (which can be seen below)
The photography brief was to collect a minimum of 10 images all based around the phrase, 'Ideas worth spreading' - my solution was to use post it notes to symbolize the 'idea' and have them spreading across the work environment and even over people - taking over their lives. Some people felt that these post-its were a pain, others embraced them - or the 'ideas'.
I researched a range of typefaces and ways other designers have implemented them. I also looked at type grids and how important they are to keep the book spreads consistent and highly polished throughout the book.
With all these considered, i draw up some ideas - then developed them further until i had the finished, highly polished layout. I then made a bound book mock up - including the playful die cut cover and playful post it quotes on the top of each spread.
