A Day in the life of the Obsessive Compulsive Designer
For my ethical design unit I created a book that explains how the creative tools we use to make our work as designers can make us be seen as obsessive. The aim of the book is to communicate to young designers how powerful our role in society is, applying our visual tools to everyday things we encounter expresses the idea that students should apply their obsessive nature around graphic design and open up to what’s around them.
Within the book I have used a photographic medium to present a realistic view of what its like to view things around us through the designer’s eye. The idea of juxtaposition shows the audience what the world would be like without us and what we do to fix it – expressing our importance. Displaying the
idea that the designer is the author, I have decided to use part of my typographic treatment as an
act of annotation.
