Vaughan Oliver: Visceral Pleasures

Graphic Design, Print Design, Typography
“Vaughan Oliver: Visceral Pleasures” is an edited interview by Guy Anglade published July 26, 2010 on www.printmag.com. While keeping true to the original interview format, I converted Guy’s article into a book that exhibits Vaughan Oliver’s work with various typographic solutions. For this project I wanted to reflect Oliver’s own design philosophies while integrating a modern interpretation. By experimenting with materials, my goal was to capture the ominous atmosphere that Oliver is known for and represent his work in a new light.​​​​​​​

The interior of the book is printed on Dur-O-Tone Butcher Off White by French Paper Co.
The binding is a combination of Tyler School of Art’s signature bind and traditional.
The pull quotes are printed on mylar and overlay Oliver’s design work.
