DESIGN AND THE PLAY INSTINCT BOOK

For this project, I had to design a book layout using Paul Rand's article, Design and the Play Instinct. After reading the article, I felt that it had a geometric vibe and I wanted to incorporate different shapes in the book layout, specifically triangles.

I chose the blue for the color theme because different shades of blue added a playful element. I decided that the book should be 8x8" because most of the article talked about stories including squares. The fonts used in this book include Gill Sans, and Futura.

When designing, I included negative space because it made the design look clean and modern. 

Later, I printed the pages and used the perfect bind technique to connect all of the pages. Using PVC glue and clamps, I was able to successfully finish my product.
