This indie publication will be like a picture book. So the target audience will not only include young people with a busy work but also some photography lovers and art fans.
The Brief Design a photographic indie book about short journeys. Based on works I have made before (photography, diaries), get them together for a new theme. Rework them and make them with a new look. Use InDesign to layout and use Lightroom, PhotoShop, watercolour and handdrawing some other ways to do with the visual element. Make it of my style and any interesting idea accepted. Eg. Handwriting font and watercolor effects and pop up pages so on. Chose the right material and packaging. Think about the size and layout. Print and bind my book at end.

Self-Initiated Project 2 Typeface design
Self-Initiated Project 2 Typeface Design Design a font of a family. There are some reasons for me to choose typeface design as my SIP2: 1, I havenâ€™t done typeface design before. 2, I love typeface and I think itâ€™s so beautiful just like illustrations and photographs. 3, I want get sWome experience for the final major project. Maybe, I will design a font and then use it for the book, which could have some relationship with SIP1. I have tried a lot of ways to design the typeface. Finally I find AI could be most suitable for me. Before drawing some draft of the font, I check the books of font design and also many masterpiece of great designers onlin. As well, the plant and some illustrations also play important role in the process of developing my font. They give me more inspiration and some different interesting ideas. I love them. I design a family with this font and I think this work can be continued someday in the future.
