So the launch of the briefs was last Tuesday and it took me a while to decide on which one I am going to work on.. Eventually I chose the one sponsored by Pentagram, the most appealing to me. The brief asks to create some special publications as a supplement to The Typographic Circle’s magazine ‘Circular’. The whole brief as downloaded from D&AD’s sites here.
For this brief I will need to choose 3 designers/writers/typographers who have given talks for The Typographic Circle, produce a cover and 4 spreads for each individual. To be considered: format and size. The style of the publications must NOT be a copy or pastiche of the designer I am featuring, but it should be a distinct and original typographic solution that would sit well with the other material The Typographic Circle produced.
Things to research:
- style/work of each one of the three designers
- character/style of The Typographic Circle
- look at the magazines/posters they produced
- look at other special publications/editions/books
