PROJECT OBJECTIVE\.

In this project We were encouraged to explore new ways to communicate with text and image. This

project was to create a type-based book with a direction of a topic that we interested, design the

type system and visual style, then using the system consistently through the whole book. I Also created

an E-book version for the digital platform by using similar visual style.

 

PROJECT APPROACH\.

My topic is about postage stamps. My main design purpose is to create the visual system that based on the fonts and graphic elements to convey the characteristics of the postage stamp. I combined multiple typefaces and styles to create the contrast in order to enhance the reading experience. For the E-book version, after considering the user experience for reading on the iPad, I also use the same visual system to create the layout that more comfortable for screen reading.

“Be like a postage stamp.
Stick to one thing

until you get there.”
