Critical Perspectives

Critical Perspectives is a book of collected and curated essays written by peers to raise awareness of people and events that helped shape our country or had a detrimental impact on our country’s people. I based my design decisions off of the need to create something elegant and clean, but still draw attention. Authoritative type with pull quotes brings forth the impactful meaning of each emotionally moving essay, while the dotted lines were used to illustrate the connectedness of the authors and their stories, almost like connecting people on map by drawing lines.

The hand crafted element of the bound book prompts an audience to take careful notice of the political and social issues, as well as achievements and saintly acts by amazing people out there working everyday to make a difference.
