Joey Comeaus „Lockpick Pornography“ Re-Design.
This was a university project for typography class.
We were told to re-design a book that we thought had bad typography to make it work better and in unison with the story. While Joey Comeau’s novel „Lockpick Pornography“ wasn’t poorly designed, it had a drastic „voice“ that I felt could benefit from louder typography and imagery.
The novel focuses on the topics of heteronormativity, bi/homo/trans-sexuality. In the design process I spent a lot of time on tumblr, reading up on LGBTQ issues and first-hand experiences. It felt right to draw from the images that I was presented on these blogs, so they made their way into my re-design.
