The Deadwood Archive - ISTD


This project was answering the brief ‘The Dead Wood Archive’ from ISTD ( International Society of Typographic Designers). This design piece celebrates a book called Afro-Caribbean Religions by Brian Gates. This history book solely speaks about slavery and the colonisation of Africa and the Caribbean region by Europeans. This leads the book to explain religious movements like Rastafarianism. Each section of text and images are coded into different meaningful colours of the Rastafarians. The concertina is in the chapter in which quotes from an interview with a Rastafarian are presented. The book format allows the layout, images and text to be dynamic and represents the journey of the book.
