brief

Combine and unify two sets of unrelated text, 'Virtues of Design', by Gui Bonsiepe, and a set of poems by Emily Dickinson, within one bound book design.

concept

A light and elegant design structure that merged the two texts, whilst allowing them to stand independently as their own concept. The core text utilised stricter grid formulas, whereas the second set of poems embodied a more free and dynamic aesthetic, with fonts and colour-ways cohesifying the book as a whole.

deliverables

Full book design and creation.
