While doing this assignment my teacher had us pick three different topics and the one we were most excited about was our topic. I picked coffee around the world because I just recently just got back from Spain and I was exposed to so many different types of coffee drinks.

During the discover phase I had to try to figure out how I was going to do this design wise. I have never done a book before so this was an entirely new experience for me.

I had to research a bunch of layouts to try to figure out my design. It took me a couple of tries but in the end I decided to try to bring the flavor of the countries. After that was done I had to come up with a ticket, poster, t-shirt, and wildcard idea for my museum.

When I was refining this I met with my teacher and we went over a bunch of different design elements that would help make my overall presentation look better. And the cover, back cover, and inner covers were scans from the actual passport.

After all the layout was done I had my book printed about three different times until I got it right. Once it was printed then I had to bound it. I sewed all the inter pages the same way my passport was. And I had my front cover printed on heavier paper so that it had the texture of an actually passport.

I am so very happy with how it turned out!


Work In Progress: week fourteen

My Book is bound and glued! I am so happy with how it turned out. Okay, okay let me take it back a notch. So my book is a big passport. I studied the bindings of my actual passport and tried to replicate it as well as possible.

So I bound the inside pages all together using ten holes and white hemp. I threaded it through the pages and then interlocked it in the front and the back.

Once the inside pages were done i had to do the cover. The cover pages were printed on thicker paper so I had to hot glue gun it to the middle section once I had folded it.

And now everything is done! I’m so glad. Everything is totally done and together.

Color and Food: a photography assignment

I visited a latino market the other day with some friends and decided to bring the camera there and do my assignment for class. I started out playing with some selective focus, playing with different compositions. I think the color turned out very beautifully in these photographs.

I plan on continuing to take photographs throughout the summer.
