Print & web publication project / 2021
For this project, I was tasked with designing a cohesive typographic design system, both in digital form as a website and as a print publication. The text could be any article and interview of my choosing.
The outcome of this project: Homo Deus, named after the book by the same name written by Yuval Noah Harari, explores similar themes of technological advancements that are blurring the line between humans and machines. For the texts I chose the Adjacent Interview of Heather Dewey-Hagborg and for my article I chose the Real Life Magazine’s Is It My Body article on tech horror.
The printed publication uses qr-codes, a loading bar in lieu of a traditional page numbering system, and other subtle homages to the digital tools we are familiar with, in order to intertwine the physical & natural materiality of the magazine with the ephemeral & digital realm of the machine. While the website prototype’s design attempts the opposite, bringing a printerly touch to the digital.
The website prototype can be accessed temporarily by clicking here while I find the time to code it all by hand into a fully functioning website.
