Objective
Employ dynamic typography and original imagery to execute innovative editorial spreads featuring a classmate.

Design Strategy
The subject of this spread, August Hess, is an poet who grew up in Idaho and taught primitive skills to at-risk-youth in the Great Basin desert. To convey these aspects of August’s history I used cut paper to construct a desert landscape imagery and titles to accompany the spread.
