A GUIDE TO
Writing is a challenging task for anyone. People who are not inherently comfortable with writing, can many times get intimidated by the usual structure of ‘Academic Writing’ that implements an extensive vocabulary of technical jargon and ‘Artspeak’. To break through this aura of intimidation and inaccessibility, I decided to make a short and humorous guide to “Writing about Graphic Design” that empathises with the concerns and anxieties that non-writers may have when facing the challenge of having to write.
The form that this project takes is a short zine with humorous illustrations in a flat vector style, including use of visual comedy and visual puns, bright colours and striking patterns that really complement the writing style and add a lot to the humour without taking away from the heart of the content which is really helpful for anyone venturing into writing.
