OBJECTIVE

Select a story that has development potential in terms of visual design and design a book. The story must be involved enough to inspire a complex typographic system.

APPROACH

I cast my eyes on The Feather Thief from a novel by Kirk W. The story described the theft of a specimen in a museum. Beside using “Shady” as the keyword of my design, I use black color to convey the mysteriousness of the theft, and the combination of orange and black colors to create a strong visual impression. In terms of design elements, I use linear drawing and color blocks and intersperse them between the diagrams and the text to reinforce the atmosphere of the story.
