cover typography

The best merch is the type you make yourself.

Last semester was when I got into Sailor Moon, and this was entirely due to a book redesign project in my Typography class. It was the typical “redesign a classic novel” spiel, but I argued for how we could define the term classic. Some professors are the coolest. 

I always wanted to get into Sailor Moon, and this project was the perfect opportunity. I’ll upload concept designs soon, cause my initial ideas were much different from the final.
