Typographic Structures

Special Thanks:
Tyrone Drake

Illustrator, InDesign

Focusing on the typeface Akzidenz-Grotesk throughout the entirety of the project, I was required to present 15 studies for 8 different phases as a series of exercises to discover how typographic structures can be composed relative to assymmetrical balance, hierarchy, emphasis, contrast, the use of negative space, and grouping/proximity. The project subject was Type Geist, requiring each study to include placement of text describing the title, volume, issue, publisher, website, and features of the magazine.

Select pages from the final 136 page book, featuring 40 of the best designs from the project— included are each phases’ brief, chosen final designs, as well as sketches.
