The International Society of Typographic Designers set a number of competition briefs for students to enter, among them was one titled 'It happened on this day', a brief that tackled the topic of events that happened on particular days and dates throughout history. We were tasked with choosing a date and exploring it through a medium and format of our choice.
Considering that this was a competition brief set by a typographical organisation, I planned to make the design as typographically experimental as possible, making each spread unique. In terms of content, I chose the date Friday 13th as I believed this would provide some interesting and engaging content, with greater possibility for typographical experimentation.
With a design that relied on a lot of layering effects, I chose to print it on a risograph, which turned out to be both the making of and the downfall of the book. It resulted in some visually engaging and aesthetically pleasing design spreads with experimental typography, but errors at the print stage, ended in the consequence of having to cut the book in two.
