Once Upon A Grid

Our first true project in Typography is a booklet that explores the grid system.

Each student may choose an existing (not made up) short
story/poem(s)/urban legend to use as your content. Using type only, with the occasional (approved) vector graphic, you will create a bound booklet or functioning accordion booklet.

Explore & experiment with grid systems to help tell your chosen story. Make decisions about how to disseminate the information, while keeping in mind the relevance of the information, from page to page so that rhythym in readability is not hindered.

• booklet must contain a minimum of 5 spreads + front/back cover
• accordion must consist of a minimum of 10 panels + front/back cover

Here are some examples from this semester’s students:
