  • Text Slang; For Grown Ups
    Editorial Designing

  • This is a project I did for the 'Collaboration & Professional Associations - 2' Unit in my Final Year
    of the degree. I decided to select the ISTD 2013 ‘Books Still?’ brief in the publishing stream.
    The brief required an editorial design project that considers how we read in the 21st century.
    I decided to make a book to teach the texting language to parents and adults. My aim is to bridge the gap between teens and parents. Parents could use this book to learn the basics of mastering text slang to monitor their kids even though it is unethical, or they could use this book to become
    a ‘cool parent’ and keep up with the 21st century.
  • Taking the book out of the cover creates the illusion of a teenager growing up.
