Process

Between their many sessions together with their subjects, Dave and Brittany had an enormous amount of content. After a design direction was agreed upon, we began a process of pairing poems and images. Dave and Brittany each had a number of must-have images and poems for inclusion into the book. The remaining pages came together as poems and pictures naturally found their emotional pairing.

Concept

The design direction was driven by the notion of viewing this work in a contemporary art exhibition. What might that look like? What might that feel like? I was very intrigued by the idea creating a compact version of what I imagined this experience to be.

Typography

Tall and strong, yet with soft and sturdy edges —the sans serif typeface, Ultramagnetic is used for titles and headlines.  The excellent legibility and soft geometric forms of the sans serif, Glober act as a compliment to Ultramagnetic.
