Project No. 3
Assigned: Tuesday, June 9, 2015
Due: Thursday, June 18, 2015 (end of class)
Duration: 4 class sessions / 10 days total
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:
- Small-scale design
- Front/back relationship
- 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.
