This brief was set by Graphicdesign&. We were given the first chapter of Great Expectation by Charles Dickens and had to re- lay out the page.
collaborated with Libby W.
We explored the act of reading; the first impression you get from reading a book, especially the first page. We found out that there are two ends to the spectrum of 'readers': from the ones that immerse themselves in the book world to the ones who are put off by it. We decided to use synonyms to represent the different imaginations that people have even through reading the same text. All the relevant synonyms have been illustrated to show the complexity of the written novel. The font chosen for our design was Times New Roman because we wanted to keep as close to the original as possible. This was purely because our concept might seem 'muddled' if a new typeface was introduced. It is set between 6pt and 9.5pt.
