Bagel Snob

Publication Design
Student

     Brief: Design/ typeset an existing article, make it expressive. Approach: I chose a New York Times story about failing Californian bagel bakers. The strong narrative is overshadowed by the author's comical food snobbery.  I found inspiration in the dramatic aesthetics of both contemporary restaurant design and aging paper back spy novels. I set the article in Trooper and Gatsby, set margins tight to create tension, and drew  illustrations. Finally I Riso printed and glue bound the publication myself.
