Empathy & Enterprise.Complied poster book.

Poster print book..

During visual research in a local book store when I was planning to create my own how to guide on dyspraxia, I found a book compiled of contemporary art and witty designs. I found this book for Calgary Society for persons with disabilities organisation that told their finial history and worked simultaneously as a book to create awareness for those living with disability, created by WAX partnerships. The brief was to create an innovative report that raised funds for the organisation.  This book comprises of large photographic pieces, large typography and honest down to earth language about how being disabled creates a  difficult in every day life. They achieved this by creating a book compiled of prints and information that was bound in the centre of the book with a single staple.  I found this idea of design utterly fantastic in how simple it appears but how obviously well conceptualised the publication was.The best design is the one that appears the most simple and it only becomes simple or appears simple after an in depth development process. I propose to create a book of the same calibre that doesn’t just communicate the difficulty in having a mental disability or gross and fine motor-coordination problems, but  specifically communicates the non linear thinking patterns of dyspraxia through an implied impractical and odd way of binding the book together. Initial ideas are of multiple staples on the front of the book or puncture holes and string. The intellect behind this proposed idea is sound and consistent with the conceptuality surrounding my FMP of the coordination difficulties associated with Dyspraxia, aswell as the purposes of my current line of development work being to simulate an experience of dyspraxia for an audience to interact with.
