matt duncan designs an editorial series.
Reflection of Practice
is a collection of nine editorial spreads. The content for each is self-generated through written personal reflections derived from readings pertaining to typography and design.
The nine inside editorials are designed as a series; I wanted to create spreads that spoke the same language visually, yet possessed an identity all their own. Inspired by the “There is No Bad Type” article I read, I challenged myself to use two less conventional typefaces throughout: Synchro LET and Webdings, along with Eurostile for the body type. To present a unified tone, I pulled elements from some spreads into background or pattern elements in others, and stuck to a consistent three-color palette. Post-production, I also created a webpage where you can view some of my digital iterations and process with each individual spread design which you can view here.
