For this project the students designed covers for the book:
Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine. This project was done in conjunction with an exhibition at the Geoffery Yeh Art Gallery at SJU titled Citizen.
• Students initially created two different treatments for the cover of Citizen: An American Lyric, by Claudia Rankine. These designs reflected concepts in the text based readings of the text and in class conversations.
• One cover was designed with type only, the other will contain both type and image, as per below:
— Type only: thinking about the different ways that type can be used to create image, students used the title of the text, as well as any of the words of phrases to create the cover design.
— Type and image: The imagery they created had to be their own; either collage or illustration or some combination.
