Description
Time Life redesign was all about taking a original Time Life book and redesigning two chapters and two photoessays within the chapters we thought would be most fitting to demonstrate our capabilities. Once I decided on “Man and Space” as my book I would be redesigning, I then developed and grid systemin which my chapters would follow. Flexibility was the key, I needed to have a grid that was flexible enough to support all different sizes of info graphs, photos, full spread images, body text and pull quotes. My chapters are set in a 14 column grid for a full spread, 7 columns for a single page. This gave me the flexibility to move my body text and change the widths to account for different info graphs and sizes of photos. The style or the mood I decided to go with for the chapters was something of a retro deep space feel, but with a hint of a futuristic input. Most of the imagery I choose was from some of the first space flights from the 1960s through the 1970s,which was to keep the body text and quotes in tact with the images I decided to go with. The inverted images and the deep purples with bright highlights was influenced by the deep space photos of galaxies and solar systems I would come across while searching for images. Space is the absents of color, and is yet full of color at the same time.
