When we had the assignment to make the photo book I really wanted to make something sleek and cool looking. I decided to take inspiration from some of my favorite album covers, which use a lot of sharp shapes, sans-serif fonts, and random use of Japanese. It just gives it a really industrial feel, and when you mess with the colors you can make something that looks interesting.
So at first I only had the table of contents in mind, but soon after the whole book came together. I had my doubts about the design after I remembered all of the Bannack photos that I took over the semester, but I decided to go with it anyway. In the end, I think it was the right choice to go with the design I picked. I’m really happy how it came out.
