BOOK DESIGN

This is a photo book I designed and made for my 19th birthday.
The book consists of photos I took from 2016 to 2018 at various cities and counties. There are 6 sections of the books that are of 6 different themes. I also include quotes from some literature that inspired me throughout the design process to express the everyday life I capture through camera.
Taking advantage of this project being a self-motivated one, I experimented with printing with Pantone colour and other ways to maximise the visual that I would like to accomplish for this book. By untitled

BOOK DESIGN

A book designed for Editorial Experience project 3. The prompt is to use 100 found imageries and no text to create a visual narrative.
My idea is “shadow/light”. I found 100 photos of landscapes online and edited them into a vertical, monochrome format. All pages are printed on clear acetate to create a sequence going from dark to light. Though it will be harder to see individual images on clear acetate, there is a stonier correlation between pages just making the audience able to see what is coming next, and how as thickness increases, things get more opaque. Also, I consider the black ink printed on acetate the “shadow”, but it also creates real shadow when being seen under direct light.
doing so, I hope to leave a meaningful mark for my 19th birthday.
