Books Still?
ISTD 2013 competition entry
Award: Merit

This project was my entry for the ISTD student awards 2013. The brief that I chose to design for was called Book Still? This looked at how we read in the 21st century.

I chose to look at how we read and interact with
smartphone technology. As well as this, I also
treated the typography to help reflect the effect
of touch interaction on the devices content in
a literal way.

The two typefaces that I used for this project are Droid Serif and Droid Sans. These fonts are used
on most current Android mobile devices.
