Project: No. 4
Assigned: Tuesday, June 9, 2015
Duration: 4 class sessions / 10 days total
Due: Thursday, June 18, 2015 (end of class)
For this project we will be working small (while thinking big) through the design and production of a set of five bookmarks.
Each piece will need to maintain its individuality, while matching the look and feel of the full set.
The project will emphasize the following components:
Maintaining individuality within a larger framework
Providing the standards for the larger framework
Organizing an unusual height/width ratio
Print production issues (registration, bleed, trim)
Each bookmark must include written and visual content pertaining to the chosen book (or series). The written content can be directly sampled from the book itself, the book's Amazon listing (or comments section), critical review, etc.
Students may visit the WCC Library to look for source books.
