This was my 2012 portfolio developed during my senior year of college. The concept centered around inuit ceremonial masks both as a metaphor of design today and a historical example of the design process, before being titled as such.
Inuit tribes would construct masks under the direction of a spiritual leader who would exact the masks to a particular vision or concept. After completion, the masks would then become focal points of ceremonies that united the nomadic tribes both geographically and psychically. Once the masks had served their purpose they were discarded.
Referencing the ephemeral nature of the masks, I designed the portfolio as a disposable magazine that was easily replicated and distributed. This medium allowed for multiple people to interact and partake in the portfolio at one time, bringing focus to one central idea / object: ME!
