Lemon. Wet. Good.

CAMPAIGNSPEAKMy favorite page in b’s year-end issue recaps many of the crazy quotes from the presidential campaign.

My editor provided 11 quotes and explanations to go with them. I then found corresponding photos and silhouetted and posterized them in Photoshop. After creating a speech bubble in Illustrator, I played with the typography, and then squeezed all those elements onto a tabloid-size page using InDesign. Then the page was converted to a PDF finally placed on a page in Newsgate.

I only had about an hour and a half to zoom through this project, but it was strangely enjoyable. I have zero interest in video games, but speed-design is fun. And that’s not a bunch of malarkey.
