The Light Years

The objective of this project was to activate a short story using typographic designs to convey its attitude. Based on Italo Calvino's "The Light Years" from his short story collection "Cosmicomics," the individual signs are designed to allow the reader to experience the story from the protagonist's point of view as he narrates his ongoing tension over guilt.

Using Baskerville as the font choice, the display type is meant to be more playful. Various techniques include nuanced placement and size variation as a means of translating the protagonist's expressive signs.
