Publication Design

In the Publication Design course, students are asked to write and design a book that lets the oppressed say their word to the world. If they see themselves as oppressed, they can write in the first person. If not, they can interview people that see themselves as oppressed and write in the third person or invite these people to write themselves. Then, they must design the book so that the voice is not diminished by the design of the oppressor. Before starting the project, we identify the standard oppressive aesthetic interactions in Publication Design, such as white-space neutrality. The challenge is to find a design of the oppressed for the book that promote liberating interactions while reading and enjoying the work.
