As part of my professional practice and development, I have been at a Graphic design : experience Industry course at Chelsea College of Arts.
The brief was to design and produce a publication housing the text Kew gardens, by Virginia Woolf. I worked on all stages of the process : ideas, design, illustration, editing, typesetting, layut, preparing images for print, exporting PDFs and printing. This project was a perfect brief in the relevance to my research on this course.
I was happy with the general stylistic route I took. I found that i didn't finish typesetting quick enough, and I will use the letterpress resources in the new year to develop my skill, also different bookbinding options.
For my project i will work with scientific and educational consultants on the content of the activity books.
I visited the zine collection at the LCC library. There was a selection of self oubkishing with some interesting bindings. Some are below.
