  Modular system for large volume reference set

I designed this set of reference dictionaries for an advanced typography class at Art Center.

My role on the project included art direction, design, and all production.

I created these deliverables
• Dictionary set format
• Page structure and layout
• Prototype production

  Modular dictionary set

The system needed to be modular so the design could be applied to any new volumes.

  Modular dictionary set

I envisioned a die cut cover with clear plastic inserts, that would reveal the definitions of words embedded in the cover on the title page.

  Modular dictionary set

We printed the covers for these volumes, designed the interior typographic structure and bound them.

  Modular dictionary set

The cover featured a layered literary text in a variety of colors to create a rich fabric of type.
