I am a graphic designer that takes a critical approach in personal design projects. I have a particular interest in publication design and it has become the field of focus in my career along with working towards participating academically. The project submitted was done during my honours degree to be submitted to the ISTD. The brief addressed was a call for an editorial output that explored everything about one thing, my chosen subject was 'nothing'. The subject matter was explored from concept, through to process and brought across into format and the output of a narrative about nothing.
