Please, please, please if you have a few minutes, stop by and read through Aprile Elcich’s finished digital thesis book.
In a perfect world, all design would feel like this to me. After viewing the book I had to declare that she is my new design idol. I love all the incorporated collages and the handwritten text.
I’ve worked as a professional “graphic designer” since I was 16 and I’m 32 now, and yet her work just blows my mind. Looking at Aprile’s book I realize she has done what I could only dream of doing professionally, bridging design and art. Can you imagine if you received a book like that in the mail? I’d keep it under my pillow, and I’m sure it would bring lovely dreams each night.
