This publication highlights the voice of Stefan Sagmeister and his philosophies about design, along with my own response to his work. The concept of guts is based off a direct quote about taking risks. I set the book up to tactilely reflect the issue using color and pacing seeing it as almost an alive appendage of this conversation. The deeper you page through the closer you get to the heart of the book. I designed a typeface made entirely out of pig intestines, which was a personal guts moment stepping out of my comfort zone to try and create something with a bit more life.

I was selected to participate in CCS's practicum course where we worked to design the materials and space for the Student Exhibition Opening and Portfolio Day for the Graphic Design department. It was definitely a challenge to think about typography in the context of space, but as you can see we had a lot of fun playing with and embracing the possibilities.
