Thesis book

George Brown College School of Design

Thesis Process Book (April 2006): a component of my final design thesis at George Brown College, the Process Book documented the research, work and theory behind the semester-long project that lead to my final design deliverable, the Requires Assembly newspaper design and production handbook.

The digital version below shows the spreads from the original saddle-stitched digitally-printed 8x10" book and begins with the full cover spread as seen if the cover was laid flat. The front cover reads: "Thesis process book for third year design student at George Brown College, Mike Barker January to April 2006."

The book was typeset using Barker Gothic, a custom typeface inspired from Benton and Trade Gothic fonts. Two websites were also built to support both the project and the final book. (Requires Assembly went on to be published in late 2006).
