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 condescension, reminiscent of the great NY v. Montreal bagel debates. 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 glue bound five copies and then created these 3D renderings.
