ISTD 2013 Books Still? entry

  • Books Still?
    ISTD 2013 competition entry

    Award: Merit
    This project was my entry for the ISTD student awards 2013. The brief that I chose to design for was called Book Still? This looked at how we read in the 21st century.
    I chose to look at how we read and interact with smartphone technology. As well as this, I also treated the typography to help reflect the effect of touch interaction on the devices content in a literal way.
    The two typefaces that I used for this project are Droid Serif and Droid Sans. These fonts are used on most current Android mobile devices.
