- Cover and interior design
- Icon system
The design decisions regarding Re-Sew centered around creating a unique output with a small budget. Key features of this small-run publication include:
- Neenah CLASSIC Linen Antique Gray paper
- Risograph printing
- Illustrated tutorials
- Bellyband with needle
An icon system was created to make the tutorials easier to understand. I wanted to advantage of the happy accidents that Risograph printing produces and designed the images with thick solids. Since each book produced going to looks a little different as a result, they become a little more personal.
Because the budget was small and each book was bound by hand, there were many limitations that had to be considered. These limitations impacted the most pressing issue of how to condense a lot of information into something smaller and more digestible. The earliest ideation of Re-Sew featured diecuts, which would have not been feasible with this in mind.PROCESS BOOK
Social media also helps facilitate communication and socialization. Posts are shared between the website and social media accounts to reach a wider audience without isolating Re-Sew's primary demographics.
