researchjournal20142 copy

This book was produced as part of my first PhD year.It is the research journal containing thoughts, experiements, interviews, reflections, important content to the research.  My practice as a communication designer implies a structured, and messy at the same time, documentation of my work.

On Divergence and Convergence is the title to a year which resembled a DNA strand of intertwining discoveries and nuances of colliding ideas.

This week I indulged into the bookbinding of my research journal of year 1.  This is part of my methodology and has been my way of working since 2008.  I inherited the taste for research journal making through my dear Masters supervisor Tracey Waller. The book is sectioned into weekly summaries, overviews of talks and workshops, a quote section and a glossary of terms used within my research.

It was printed by FE Burman print house and bound by Wyvern's in London.  I will share further images and key spreads soon!
