Creativity 46 International Awards, Gold Award for Publication - 2016
This publication about con artists was my undergraduate thesis project at Drexel University. I designed this publication in order to explore the factors involved in manipulation and the human mind. In "This Concerns You,” I aimed to challenge what print design represents as a medium. Each experimental layout represents part of the con artist’s handbook. This book offers a walk through the key building blocks of all cons.
I created an experimental publication about the process that con artists use to trick everyone, including themselves. It was both a challenge and a blast to make. I frequently collaged found images to inject playfulness into the illustration. It was not easy to finish this book in 10 weeks. I learned a lot of tricks and tactics to handle future planning.
