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. For me, the strong prose was overshadowed by the authors subtle but distinct condescension, which gives the piece an air of comedy. I found inspiration in the dramatic aesthetics of both atmospheric 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. I Riso printed and hand bound five copies and then created these 3D renders.
