This GRD 222 keystone project asks student designers to demonstrate the ability to leverage the language of typography and images. In doing so, designers have the opportunity to create a book from concept to completion while gaining experience creating visual-verbal narrative including giving attention to pragmatic concerns such as project management, content development, and technical execution at a professional level. Not to mention having to wrestle (usually for the first time) sequence and system design across space and time.
