For this particular project I wanted to set some harsh guidelines for myself in order to flex muscles I was not necessarily good at. My two biggest rules were no color and nothing but typography (no illustrations or photos). Anyone who knows me, knows that designing in full B&W is not something I normally do. I started playing around with typography and how it can be a powerful tool for image making. I printed, scanned, cut up, stomped on, ripped, crumbled, different typefaces to express strong emotions. I think the experimental typography lended really well to the subject of the entire piece. The concept of ‘putting the pieces back together’ emotionally after being bullied was something I wanted to touch on. I think it also helped talk about a serious subject without being overly literal. Every piece in this broadsheet was made outside of the computer and photographed or scanned in to give it a very dynamic and tactile feel. The guidelines put in place at the beginning of the project lead to the overall success of the piece - in my opinion.
