Making Books

It’s coming to the end of the final year of the Foundation Degree course that I am on. The majority of projects have been handed in with the exception of Animation and Film Production which are due on the 2nd and 3rd of June. Today I submitted my Industrial Placement, and Graphic Design assignments.

Graphic Design is one of the subjects that I enjoy the most and am stronger at. This year both first and second semesters projects have been produced in a professionally printed book, which I found to be one of the more exciting parts! I love books anyway, but to see my own hard work presented well in a book, is one of the best, satisfying feelings. I used Blurb to print my books and they always do such a great job, that once I find a good subject matter and decent content I will definitely consider creating more books.

Here is second semester’s Graphic Design book. A post on first semesters book can be found here.

The brief was to create a marketing campaign for Waterstones. I chose to use the method of cut paper, with a post-modernist theory on making the audience guess the subject of each poster design. Encouraging them to guess what book each image and quote comes from.
