Writing can be a challenging and intimidating task for someone. A short and humorous guide to “Writing about Graphic Design” was to be scripted and designed, to break through this aura of intimidation and inaccessibility. The book was expected to empathise with the concerns and anxieties that non-writers may have when facing the challenge of having to write.
The form that this project takes is a short zine with humorous illustrations in a flat vector style, including use of visual comedy and visual puns, bright colours and striking patterns that really complement the writing style and add a lot to the smile without drifting away from the heart of the content.
As a piece of design-writing that chooses design, and writing itself as its subject matter; the zine comes through as a clever, visually appealing and meaningful piece of work that can genuinely help some people.
