A Designer's Monologue by AbhaySingh1 A Designer's Monologue by AbhaySingh1
Hit download for a high resolution version (3605*2787px, 3MB), or you'll miss out on the details. ;)

Here's my latest college project. We were asked to do any project we liked and were given 5 weeks' time to finish it. I've chosen to create this book which is meant to create awareness of design in a very simple way - through a monologue. When put together in order, the spreads say:

"What is design? Is it what people say it is? Is it just fancy artwork? No. Design is a lot more than that. It is simple, honest, intelligent communication. Of course, that doesnít mean it has to look boringÖ thatís what makes it such hard work!

Good design costs more than a pair of jeans, but the value it brings is enormous. Why pay twice as much for a Mac thatís half as powerful as a PC? Itís simple. Itís pretty. It works. Itís good design and you want one.

A good product + A good design = Happy customers *

* Happy customers help you grow"


The order of the spreads is from left to right, top to bottom, the first (top-left) one being the cover.

Printed on:
Cover - 260gsm Stardream Dolomite metallic paper
Inner pages - 260gsm matte coated art paper

Cut, stitched and bound by hand by me. :)

Some stock images taken from sxc.hu (paper, book etc. on spread 2 and Mac Pro on spread 10). Credit for the tileable wood texture on spread 2 goes to [link] by *ftIsis-Stock :)

Have a look at the spreads individually at [link] or the Issuu.com book version at [link]
