Based on the field trip in Bondi, a dynamic typeface is developed, and is applied to book cover design. Studio work, Independent.
Bondi beach has all the conventional hallmarks of the beach and seaside aesthetic. What distinguishes the popular beach from other great Sydney beaches (such as Manly) is the kinetic sense of vigor. So I use abstract waves - folding lines as grids and adapt the spirit of the traditional English four-line format, to generate dynamic typeface.
The book cover shares the same visual language with the typeface. Three feactured activties sunbathing, surfing, and sand volleyball are illustrated to present the relaxed, adventurous, and vibrant lifestyples of people at Bondi beach. The folding grid is designed as the towel for sunbathing, the net for sand volleyball, and the waves for surfing.
