ISTD: Books Still?
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. The casing for the screen sized cards was shaped using a laser cutter and etched using a laser cutter too. Everything was created and prepared for cutting by myself in Illustrator.
This project resulted in me achieving a Merit award and lifetime membership to the prestigious ISTD society.
