I took a publishing class last semester. Our first project was inspired by Ellen Lupton’s Graphic Design Thinking: Beyond Brainstorming. Sprinting: to do many, many, many 30-minute typography exercises in 8×8 squares. I think we all did close to 30 different compositions. We sourced our body copy from Craigslist’s Missed Connections section.
I’m really happy with my finals. They’re pretty dynamic and the color combination (black with yellow) is beautiful! The final book is a compilation of our favorite eight spreads.
