Design for SAIC’s Visual Communication department’s annual publication showcasing graduating seniors’ work.
During my internship at the Design Museum of Chicago, my main project was to create a self-guided tour booklet for their upcoming exhibition, Great Ideas of Humanity. This booklet features a timeline of important figures and events on one side, and folds out to a poster on the other side.
Initial sketches based on the quote, “Language is the armory of the human mind and at once contains the trophies of its past and the weapons of its future conquests.”
