Publication Design, 2022Rhode Island School of Design


Inspired by the Labors of Hercules, my classmates and I began the journey into this publication by gathering and generating collections based on a set of assigned tasks. Together, they informed a series of inquiries into the canonical tool we typically call an Atlas. Both individually and collectively, we meditated on two questions: “Who and where am I?” and “ Who and where are we?”  The spreads I composed are an attempt to catalog moments of deep introspection alongside the stories and the traditions of women who have raised me.
