The Hopkins Notebook
BOOK DESIGN : ICON DESIGN
The purpose of this book is to showcase a collection of scanned documents that I collected over the past 4 years of my undergrad at the Johns Hopkins University. For me, I personally have a hard time letting go of the stuff that I did while I was an undergrad. With that being said, for this project, I wanted to reminisce about the topics that I learned before I became a designer. From a huge pile of paper that includes lecture notes, homework, research papers, and exams, I scanned in materials from 9 different classes across 5 different fields of study. I then studied the visual language of each subject, and from that, I designed a set of icons for each of the 9 classes. This project provided me the opportunity to create a hybrid story where the content each page describes the Hopkins years while the handling of the content describes the MICA studies.
