This is a project I made in design school about laying out a book on a music group. Its main influence were the 90s grunge bands that of which whose visuals had a great impact on me. It won the Addy Award for this project that year!
This video was quickly thrown together so that I could advertise it on social media. I wanted its pace to move quickly so that people wouldn't scroll past it. Now that it is on my website I should really take the time to explain it. This work was the most elaborate print assignment I have ever done. Below is the book shown from the side view that has a pretty neat effect with what is called a "French Fold." With this fold the image wraps around the outer side of the page. In other words what you see on the side is actually the center of the page folded in half. The ends of the page are up against the spine.
Next to that is my design journal where I collect and draw examples that I have found. I fascinates me looking back that album design from 1997 and 1994 for some of the first ideas I thought of when I was able to pull from any period. I made this journal before starting my 90s project and yet that was still where my mind went.
