TypeBook DesignCreditMentored byJennifer Cole Phillips
This book is a printed companion to my performative project Anytwo, in which I designed a huge book(50" x 38") to connect two people with humorous play. The challenge here was, how to design another small book about that huge performative book?The visual impact of the original performative book came from size. Huge types and life-size collages. To suggest that spirit in this 10" x 8" accompanying one, I used big numbers throughout the pages. The book opens with a down-to-earth essay on humor and graphic design. The writing echoes the feeling of the original book, straight-forward and absurd. Chapters are separated by large Neue Hass type and a theme color, which all from the original performative book, for easy at-a-glance overview.
