SHADES OF ME
The concept for my book was Dissociative Identity Disorder, commonly known as D.I.D.. I visually conveyed the concept through the use of type by combining two different, but complementary, typefaces. I used imagery, graphic elements, and layout design to further exemplify the complexity of the concept, but the backbone of the design was the type and imagery. The imagery used was abstracted to various degrees, through the use of motion, to give the viewer a glimpse into this multifaceted disorder.
Design an 80-page book based on a theme. You are free to interpret the theme in any way. All elements of the design must be of your own creation. Therefore, you will need to take your own photos and/or produce your own illustrations, maps, charts and graphs. Design with type in a visually compelling, unique way. Use type and/or page layout to express a concept while still using it to clearly communicate information.
