object of our desires


heres some pages from my last project for the book class i took this term. it was based on an essay we wrote for design history about an artifact that we owned. i chose my michael kors sunglasses. we were then meant support and extend the text through a full book. my concept was to make the book look kind of like a high-end magazine using big images (used some of the sunglasses/gum pictures), small type and lots of white space. there were five sections that dealt with different aspects of the sunglasses like consumer culture and sun protection etc. i printed on thicker cardstock paper, sewed the binding and attached a hardcover. i'm really happy with how it turned out. j on the cover is perfect.

it looks amazing. well done and obviousllyy you have an eye for chic aesthetics in design. cool cool cool.

are you interested in print journalism? i always thought it'd be cool to have a grassroots magazine. thats the kind of stuff that seems to do well these days.

i'm definitely interested in layout design and photography. i'm not great at coming up with content ideas myself, so i'd want to eventually end up working with.. or for people who had good content in text or photos. it's so much easier to make something look nice when the photos are good.

this project was difficult mostly in the construction phase. that's what's hard about independent products. i would love to design something that could be printed industrially, or at least partly.

but yes, i think diy is totally more popular then it used to be.
