Type Classification

I began this project by researching the different classifications of typefaces. I then assigned each classification to a different dog breed, relating the physical characteristics of each dog to that of the classification. The final project was presented as an accordion fold made up of 10 8"x10" pages, with a total length of 80 inches. The challenges in designing this format was that the each spread needed it’s own design, but the work also had to be cohesive when all the spreads were laid out at once. By placing some dog forms on the peak folds, and aligning them to each other, it allows new dog forms to be made by folding in different pages and creating new spreads. This gave an interactive, tactile quality to the project.
