Type as Metphor 1984 by DeathlyTriforce
Type as Metphor 1984
Finally finished with my "Type as Metaphor" project.

We had to take a piece of literature and create a 4 page series representing the themes in the book through typography. One panel uses paragraphs/sentences/phrases, one uses words, one uses syllables, and one uses letters.

I chose 1984. I hope I represented it well. I kind of ended up going with a Russian Constructivist kind-of vibe which is not anywhere near where I started with. If you haven't read this book you should!



The letter page is actually kind of taken from a specific scene in the book. This represents big brother watching all the mindless and uniform people. The main character manages to have a love-affair which is forbidden, so in order to talk to one another they meet in a crowded square so that they can stand close to each other without drawing attention. They are represented in the more organic/human slanted "p and q" who are fading, because no matter what the thoughtpolice will always catch you and you will just cease to exist.

For the symbols I kind of chose one word and broke it up. I felt like the simplicity of this one worked well, but I fear it probably doesn't quite fit with the others.

This page represents the passage where the destruction of the English language is being discussed. I used El Lissitzky's piece as inspiration where the new language of Newspeak is piercing the old language in white. I have a bunch of words that mean good and bad in white, and the only 5 words to be used in Newspeak are in red. This makes more sense if you have read the book!

This page represents The Party's slogan which is everywhere and in this piece it is essentially over-powering the people who are all brainwashed into reciting this slogan as truth. I used straight ongoing bland lines of text to represent the mind-less, emotion-less people The Party has brainwashed. There is however one who deviates from the masses and as you can tell it does not go over so well with The Party.

Birchwood Plaza Fall Brochure Inside Panel by DeathlyTriforce
Birchwood Plaza Fall Brochure Inside Panel
This is the Publication project I have been working on for about a month now. It's a brochure you would receive in the mail from a shopping mall listing all of the events for the fall season I wish it was a real thing....

Needed to be done in two colors, one being black.
It is a "roll fold" brochure, so each section is a separate panel when folded.
