Type System

Fall Semester 2016

This project was planning a type system through the flow of stories, themes, and observation. The story that I chose was from the This American Life podcast, and it was divided into three parts which are a prologue, act one, and act two.  

The goal of this project was to show the theme and concept through typefaces and type setting throughout the book and through all design elements. The plot of the story was being confused from an unexpected situation. With this plot, I chose a messy manual book for the concept. I used diverse manual book style illustration and typefaces. In addition, I used a different point color for each story which are blue, red, and green.
