ISTD Entry 2020

I entered the International Society for Typographical Design Student Assessment. The brief I chose asked us to create a piece of work around the theme of Migration. We were asked to research the widest possible subject areas relating to this theme and create our own narrative and experimentation with Typography.

After researching different possible themes, the theme of my project was Migrating from my father’s family to my step father’s family, following my father’s passing. I used two different typefaces, Solitas Serif and Abril Text, they are both serif typefaces so are similar but have differences, much like my two fathers. I created the colour scheme of Black, White, and Gold to give it a more personal feel. The book contains narrative from my mother, grandparents, father and I.
