The I.D. of me as a designer by rizn The I.D. of me as a designer by rizn
Book I made for class project. The book is a collection of work created by designers who inspire me and it also contains some remixes of their work that I made myself. Every page juxtaposes each other to draw comparisons, contrasts and contradictions from the imagery on each side. To show the many facets of style that I am drawn to and how though they may be completely different in style, they have similar qualities and traits that are very important to me. The book was hand made. The exterior are zinc plates, I etched the letters into the plates through acid etching process to create a nice tactile cover that responds wonderfully to different light situations. Also, to show that I am a designer trying to merge the gap between hand-made and computer-made design. all comments welcome :)

100 pages, acid etched zinc cover bound with neopreme and outdoor nylon chair fabric.

If I can afford it, I will make a color version ! :)

I've been away for a while and I came back to a lot of posts. A few were asking who the designers in my book were. Because all my books are in storage here's a few off the top of my head :P

Charles Wilkin
Designers Republic
Stefan Sagmeister
Phantom: Research Foundation : De manifest
Me Company
Chris Ashworth

There were a lot more some from scrap magazines I had just because I liked some element in it. But I used a lot of Charles Wilkin. And a lot of the spreads were my work basically using elements from all their works and incorporating them into my own compositions.

How did you do the etching - did you cut out a stencil with the text to do that? Anyway, I love this piece of work, it's awesome!
