The problem to solve during this project was: Write a text about a prolific graphic designer and then design a book around that text.
The project started with the text. I was given Zuzana Licko and tasked with writing a factual text about her life. Then i started sketching the layout of the book. In the end i decided to use Licko's typefaces in text and as illustrations. Over 6 pages in the book I used big letters to spell out Zuzana, and each letter is built up with the text I wrote about her life. You can see the finished book down bellow.
The color scheme of the book represents the colors of the original macintosh. A computer that Zuzana Licko was an early user of. All shapes, illustrations and text in the book are all sat in and made by typefaces that Licko has created.
