After talking to some fellow classmates I realized we weren’t the only ones who struggled with trimming down our concept to a simple, solid & straightforward idea.

I think the general outcome delivered a broad scope of perceptions, thoughts & questions around design that stimulate the brain and provide a consistent frame for an answer to the main question.

I really enjoyed the variety of results; they addressed different aspects of design which deserve attention for being intrinsec to it’s own nature, amongst textures, materials, light games, sounds…

And I certainly enjoyed working with ‘K’ group, the star team, it was a pleasure!!!

Some options

I have 2 options for few pages and I need your help to pick what is better.

(Bluish lines are just rulers)

Process one will be changed later, but i have question about Progress one. I know we said that I should put “>>” in “P”, but i think it looks better without.

Potential like this or with little p next to this one?

And Provocative like this or more rounded? Maybe I should make “line” part longer since rounded version reminds me little on scissors.

Re: Book Content

Since we are making the majority of the book represent P’s, I was thinking of ways to do it. I picked 3 words at random, from the lists previously made, and the words in smaller font are merely synonyms of the word. I know its not accurate typographically, or even in design, I am only thinking of the content here.

We don’t need to use these words of course, I was just thinking of a way to convey the idea.

P’s everywhere!

Using the template Mariana made, yesterday, we got all of our P’s cut out onto the self adhesive paper! We used the Zund machine in the 3D workshop. As there was a lot of excess space around the three big P’s we filled it in with lots of small ones – that way we can have a box with lots of stickers that people can help themselves to. Everyone loves stickers, right?

Regarding the book

I really like what Aleksandra is doing with the look of the book. Minimalist seems to be the way to go. Do we think we still need to include as much text about our process? I’m not sure if we need the quotes from our research anymore either as it may confuse things.  I think it could be cool reflect our ‘minimalist’ exhibit by having a minimalist book titled ‘P is for…’ made up almost entirely of the different ‘P’ words we have come up with, maybe even one on each page a bit like this?

Also I think I posted about Craig Wards book Popular lies about graphic design way back but I think he does the minimalist look with some really interesting and sophisticated touches. He alternates pages between, white black and dark grey which I think could work nicely. what do you guys think?

New cover suggestions

This is really minimalistic design- which I think works with our latest version of doors, so let me know what you think.

Black cover.


With “P” instead of logo on back cover.

White covers. (I like white ones better- and if we decide to go with them I can print them on nice “recycled” look paper- that is no so white white)

With black logo on back page. (I think I like versions with logo better)

With even bigger “P”
