After carrying out further information of the topic in hand, I wanted to ensure that I carried out further research into styles for layout and grid for the zine, as well as looking at 80s publications to get a feel for colour, aesthetics and type. From the images below, particularly the 80s magazines you can see they are much rougher in design compared to modern day, with overlapping, collaging, using a variety of typefaces and styles; block, script, retro, sans serif, serif - especially Vogue covers. I want to keep the aesthetics of the zine true to the 80s, whilst remaining in touch with a young fashion audience, so I would like to have a modern take on the 80s style.

Every typeface has its own charisma. Not only does its presence in design lend an attribute to the identity of a product or project, but also reflect the taste, personality and attitude of the designer behind. Most designers keep a list of favourites with no more than ten typefaces throughout their trajectory. Some make a statement by sticking to just one typeface in every piece of their work. The choice for typeface is the flag held high by designers.

The jacket is printed in CMYK, plus a Pantone neon color and a holographic metal hot foil stamp. As well as the spine, the edge is colored with the neon color. Each book of the series is going to have another color, so when all the books are displayed together they will form a neon rainbow.

I Love Type is a collaboration betweenViction:ary and TwoPoints.Net. The type collection series, with focus on one specific typeface at a time, documents the fashionable comeback of a selection of timehonored typefaces in a myriad of contemporary designs gathered from around the world. 

We did an interview with Albert-Jan Pool, the designer of FF Din, for the preface of I Love Din.

This is an Exhibition Catalogue. The Exhibition was on 'The Roaring Twenties' and it was entitled "Nineteen Twenty Four". The catalogue is heavily influenced by the Art Deco of that time.

Albert Watson (b. 1942) is one of the most successful and sought-after fashion and commercial photographers working today. 

An important and accessible survey of his work, this book features previously unpublished photographs from early in his career, along with his most famous images from both commercial and artistic projects.

His instantly recognisable portraits feature many iconic figures of fashion and popular culture including Kate Moss, Jack Nicholson, Mike Tyson and Alfred Hitchcock, and his photographs have featured on over 250 covers of Vogue alongside publications such as Rolling Stone, The Face and Arena, as well as in major commercial campaigns for clients that range from Levi’s to Chanel. 

Raleigh Workshop ( is a fashion design studio based out of Raleigh, NC, founded by husband and wife Victor and Sarah Lytvinenko. They are best known for the jeans which are produced by hand on vintage machines in their downtown Raleigh workshop, with White Oak Cone Denim made in Greensboro, NC.

As a Raleigh native myself I have been interested in their development for the past few years. I created this book to showcase their story and their work so far. 

It was important to me to incorporate tactile and hand made elements to this book, to illustrate the care and handiwork they put into their clothing. There is a piece of denim in the book which is the denim they actually use, as well as kraft paper, which they use to make paper airplanes to decorate their stores. The book is hand bound using a customized Japanese stab stitch method.
